Cupping!

I've wanted to try cupping for a while now and figured I would do it in China but next thing you know you have been here 11 months and you still haven't done it. I finally convinced the girls we should try the place nearest to us which has blind people giving massages and they have other things like cupping as well...

*side note: we got to the place expecting to mime out that we wanted massages and cupping only to find the guy at the front desk was blind and didn't speak any English. Pretty damn funny. 

Anyway. All this working out we have been doing has us all kind of beat up and so we decided to try this. I've read good things about how it helps rid your body of built up toxins and Saffer just wanted to try it out to see how it felt. I was terrified watching them do hers! 

Here are some pics in case you aren't sure what the heck I am even talking about: 

 





What our backs looked like after! 



We were both a bit sore in some spots for a day or two. For me it was the tops of my shoulders and the darkest spot on my left side(middle of my back) that were problem areas and they were very sore for a couple days but after that they started to feel so much better. 

This is 5 days later! They are fading pretty quickly
I'd like to do it again soon but the marks are not really so great for summer time weather. So I might wait until it cools down again. 

Have you tried this before? 
What were your results?

That's pretty cool, did you feel less tension in your sore spots?

I've never tried this before but I've heard awesome things about it. Was it painful?
