I've got period !!!!

Does the title makes you stopped at wat you are doing and makes you wondering why am I having me period ?????? Haha....with blood oozing out of my back and using tissue to rub it off when it changes itself into semi solid form, I cant find any better words to describe the situation.

Well..... what I did ??? Haha cupping, my first actually...courtesy of my gf.

Cupping is a a three thousand year old therapy that is still leaving its mark in the medical world today.So what can you expect when you go for a cupping session? In this day and age, glass cups are used. Three thousand years ago, bamboo, animal horn or brass - if you could afford it - were the order of the day. In fact, the old Chinese name for cupping was 'horning'. he newest innovation in cupping does away with the dangerous flame and uses a pump action instead. This is also a much more accurate way of gauging the degree of suction and, of course, eliminates the risk of burning.

Doctors of traditional Chinese medicine and practitioners of Japanese shiatsu therapy, place the cups at various positions along the meridian lines. These are the same lines used in acupuncture. There are five meridians on the back and these are usually targeted, particularly the bladder meridian. By cupping these meridian lines, specific organs in the body can be targeted.

Cupping is generally used by practitioners if there is cold energy in the patient's meridians. The warm air from the cupping stimulates the skin, and the suction coaxes blood to the area which promotes localised healing. The chi is warmed and starts to flow freely down the meridians.

Then the skin is poked to release the toxins from the blood and then suction pressure is applied again to suck out the toxins from the body. With bloods flowing, its not a sight for the faint hearted.
