Plenty of celebrities have used this cupping therapy and joining the bandwagon, we have actor and former wrestler Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. The actor recently took to his Instagram account to share a post saying that he tried cupping therapy for the first time. Sharing a picture of his back, he says it looks more gnarly than it feels but still enjoyed the session overall. For the unversed, cupping therapy is a form of alternative medicine in which a local suction is created on the skin with the application of heated cups. Furthermore, he also said that he is always looking for new techniques so that he can keep his 250 million years old dinosaur body balanced and optimal.
Well, The Rock who mainly believes in an intense workout and lifts ultra heavyweights in the gym was seen taking a therapy that not only affects the mind but also maintains the body. He shared the picture of his back where the cupping marks can be easily seen. Amazed with the marks, we see Dwayne’s rather surprised look. He backed the picture with, “First time cupper over here Looks more gnarly than it feels, but over all 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 family/work/training/repeat schedule. It all takes it toll, so being proactive is critical. We only get one body, so we gotta take care of it.”
