Gwyneth Paltrow And Cupping

Gwyneth-PaltrowCuppingSOURCE 

It would seem as if Gwyneth Paltrow likes the Chinese therapy called cupping. In this practice, a cone is applied to the skin and a vacuum is created with hot air. The suction causes blood to rise to the surface and is supposed to have healing benefits such as pain relief and an increase of Qi energy. However, it could just be that Gwyneth enjoys the look of hickeys, as the suctioning produces the same effect by causing a bruise and breaking tiny veins.
