What were those marks on Michael Phelps?
Simply, not bruises.
The marks you saw (I use this word because it is more appropriate) are the physical outcome from toxins and impurities (waste products in fascia and muscle) being released from the body after cups have been applied. Cupping pulls on the underlying fascia (connective tissue) releasing the pent up stagnation n in an area.
NOTE: You may look a little beat up when you leave my office, but the mottling releases within days. Hey, it helps release tension all around. LOL
Common conditions for cupping: (always based upon the individual’s presentation)
Pain – almost all areas
Muscle tension and achiness that is acute or chronic
Cough and chest tightness
I tend to incorporate cupping as an enhancement to my acupuncture treatments.
