    Cupping works, I've had it done many times with successful results alongside gua sha for painful issues that our family doctor would tell me to pop a Tylenol for and wait it out

    --  Yes, I have had several Chinese medicine treatments including :"cupping", acupuncture, herbal medicine and also rubbing the skin with a scrapper so  blood raises to the skin surface (and later leaving a bruise).

    --  With acupuncture, it is 75-80% the treatment, and 20-25% belief in the acupuncture that makes it work.

    --  FYI -- I am a white Anglo-Saxon Australian who has lived and worked in Asia.
