my back after cupping


cool looking, eh? My French buddy I met at the hostel and I went for professional massages- only 20 yuan for one hour- that's like $3.00 USD. They also offered one hour foot baths and massages for 20 yuan and this cupping technique for only 40 yuan.
The cupping felt weird- they took about 22 glass rounded cups (like a ball) and suctioned them onto my back. The cups were warmed. It felt a little stingy and the glass was heavy but overall, I enjoyed it. And my back afterwards had those cool marks you see in the pic but there was no tenderness or bruising at all. I still have some of these marks, 2 weeks later but they are very faded.
