Ancient healing therapy involves the use of special cups on the skin to alleviate pain, and inflammation, enhance blood flow and promote overall wellness. Wet cupping, a form of this therapy, has been shown to aid infertility and improve circulation, potentially aiding conception.
Many celebrities vouch for the healing benefits of cupping therapy, citing its ability to heal both internally and externally.
1. Dwayne Johnson
In 2021, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson experienced cupping for the first time and shared, “Looks more gnarly than it feels, but overall I enjoyed the therapy. Always looking for new techniques to keep this 250 million-year-old dinosaur body balanced and optimal with not only all my past injuries, but my daily grinding. It all takes its toll, so being proactive is critical. We only get one body, so we gotta take care of it.”
2. Jennifer Aniston
During the premiere of the movie “Call Me Crazy,” Jennifer Aniston was seen with circular marks on her back, which were noticed by many people. However, this was not the first time she had undergone cupping therapy. Jennifer has been using it as a circulation stimulator for years. Although she attempted to conceal the marks with makeup, they were still visible under the paparazzi’s flashing lights.
3. Calum Best
According to British-American TV personality Calum Best, having a “cupcake of blood” taken from his head has left him feeling better than ever. He said: “It’s so hardcore, but I left feeling 10 times lighter, refreshed, and with a cleaner system. I went back 2 months later to do it again, and 10 times less blood came out, which he said showed that my circulatory system has cleaned. Stagnant, unhealthy blood comes into the cup, and as there is no air, it coagulates straight away.”
4. Justin and Hailey Bieber
Hailey Bieber expressed her fondness for using natural health remedies: “I swear by chiropractic work, I swear by acupuncture. For me, chiropractic work is anything from cupping to Grastin scraping to a little crack here and there. I used to be a dancer, so I was super into anything that was supposed to be good for injuries. I love going to saunas, infrared saunas, I’m into all of that.”
Justin Bieber appears to utilize cupping therapy and is willing to have his pictures taken for magazine shoots immediately after the treatment.
5. Kaley Cuoco
Kaley Cuoco opted for cupping therapy after her rigorous workouts left her feeling completely exhausted. She said: “My angel Flory literally scraping my legs and hips. I’m so tight I can barely bend or turn. I haven’t been able to actually move in weeks.”
6. Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga expressed a sense of healing following her cupping therapy session. She said: “What a beautiful day, got beat up pretty good with some Chinese medicine cupping. But good to stay healthy!”
7. Jessica Simpson
During her pregnancy, Jessica Simpson attempted cupping to reduce her swollen feet. She received treatment from three different cups, which resulted in a reduction in the size of her foot. Despite trying frozen chicken as a remedy for her foot, it turned out that cupping was a more effective treatment for her. She said: “My feet were so swollen, I was like, ’What do people do to, like, deflate?’ And you use ice. I didn’t have an ice pack. I just used chicken.”
