Cupping; the ancient therapy used in traditional Chinese medicine to remove stagnation and stimulate the flow of qi (chi) and circulate the blood flow better.
This is how Sandy from Thumbtastic Cape Cod explained it to us.
We have seen many athletes with circles around their body and wondered if this treatment actually worked.
Sandy refers to them as "octopus kisses" and came into the studio to show us how it works as well as give us some other therapeutic massages for our pain.
It didn't hurt one bit and we found the whole experience so relaxing and we feel great today!
Plus you have a fun momento to take home with you for 7-10 days Octopus Kisses
