You may have noticed various celebrities, athletes and influencers sporting dark circles on their backs recently. Those circles are not just the latest fashion trend. They are marks of a wellness hack that is growing in popularity- cupping. According to WebMD, "Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage."
This reverse massage method is a great way to compliment hard workouts and reduce stress that comes with the wedding planning process. It can also compare in affordability to most traditional 60 minute massages available in NYC. City Acupuncture has more than one location in Manhattan and offers services for as low as $30.
Zilla tip- avoid cupping the week leading up to an event. We don't want the dark circles to be distracting from your bridal glow to friends and guests.
