The ancient practice known as cupping has become very popular the past few weeks thanks to Michael Phelps, so we had our very own Jax give it a try. 

If you haven't noticed, Michael Phelps has been sporting large dark circles on his back and shoulders at the Rio Summer Olympic Games. These dark circles are from an ancient Chinese alternative form of medicine known as cupping.

Cupping has many health benefits including:

  • Relaxation
  • Release in Muscle Tension
  • Improvement in Mobility
  • Improvement in Blood Flow

After watching Phelps win medal after medal, we thought we would put this practice to the test with our afternoon guy, Jax.

Marilyn at Jade Screen Clinic was gracious enough to perform cupping on Jax. Although it looked painful, Jax surprisingly felt super relaxed! Check out the video above.
