Cupping therapy

I went for cupping last night, well, I actually went for a massage… professional massage, not those curious Thai massage haha.

Anyways, the doctor (still wondering whether he’s a real doctor or not lol) started by massaging my back with hands plus oil, then using some wooden object. After that, he used a machine and finally the cupping or bekam came. During that whole process, it was one of the most painful experiences ever. I didn’t scream though so my head hurt after the massage. Wakaka.

Here are some horrible pictures of the aftermath:

He didn’t use the traditional method like using fire or anything like that. He just make holes on my back, put cups and suck all the air out. And I can feel all the blood coming out and, and… okay, too graphic.

For the holes, he used some kind of instant needles hahaaha. I dunno what’s that. But that explains the swollen skin with a red dot on it.

The questionable-doctor told me that my muscle is tight and asked me to exercise. I told him I did some and he said I should also eat more fruits and drink much less coffee. Well then how am I going to start my day from now on without coffee haha.


That’s all. Happy Wednesday, everyone. Owh by the way, any of you went for cupping therapy before? I just had to ask. You know, because it’s a way to engage readers by asking questions at the end of your posts. LOL. Okbye.
