As a desperate attempt to help control the daily migraines, which not surprisingly have gotten worse with this new insane stress/heartache, I have been biting the bullet and getting weekly massages. (I LOVE massages; the harder the better. But I don't love the price tag, lol.) This week I thought to ask the therapist if she does cupping. I LOVE cupping. I had it done a couple times with my acupuncturist a few years ago and I literally think about it all the time still because it felt so good.
She was happy I asked, because although she doesn't do it often, she DOES do it! After some deep tissue work, she brought out the cups and went to work. (Unfortunately, I went in with a GNARLY headache, and we may have gone a bit too hard with the cupping. I have a very high pain tolerance.....so I'm not good with saying "ok, that's enough." I ended up with an OUTRAGEOUS migraine for the rest of the day. But, oh goodness did it feel WONDERFUL!
Post-cupping, however, you are left with a lot of goofy-looking bruising, lol. Thank good ness it's cold out! Ha!
Have a great weekend, friends! (Headed by Grandma and Grandpa to rake for a few hours tomorrow!)
