“Is cupping therapy actually effective or is it just another one of those “woo woo” wellness trends?” This is a question that I get asked quite often so I figured I would take this opportunity to share my experience with cupping and everything you need to know about cupping therapy before you go to your first session! Like many others, the first time I heard about cupping was when Michael Phelps exposed those crazy, perfectly circular, dark marks on his back during the 2016 Olympics. My initial thought was, “WTF, why would someone put themselves through something that appears to be brutally painful?!”
Most of us depend on our deodorant like it’s water, especially those in the fitness industry, but do you ever stop and think about what is actually in that little stick that you swipe on your armpits everyday? If this hasn’t crossed your mind I’ll save you the time and go ahead and suggest that if you're not already using an all-natural deodorant that you toss the little stick in the trash.
