cupping

wow. i am the last person on earth to actively seek out alternative methods of healing. too wrapped up in the western medicine mumbo-jumbo i guess. my doc sent me to an acupuncturist to see if they can give a little relief. i went reluctantly. dayam. no needles, but i was "cupped" along the spine. i feel as good as after a physical therapy session with a massage. don't know how long it will last, and i don't know what makes it work, but i am not complaining! i thought it was somewhat humorous when the acupuncturist tried explaning that the cupping process was going to "draw out" the old injury. call me puzzled. how do yo "draw out" osteo-arthritis with a little suction applied to the surface of the skin? like i said, don't know what makes it work, but i feel better for having the procedure. even if it only lasts for a few hours, that's an improvement. ah, the modern wonders of ancient medical practices.
