CUPPING, Kerry Jenni L.Ac. appeared on Burlington’s WCAX on August 11, 2016 to discuss cupping.
BURLINGTON, Vt. –
Michael Phelps is killing it in Rio. The 31-year old Olympian has won three golds — upping his lifetime Olympic medal count to 25.
Thursday he competes for gold again in the 200-meter individual medley. Because he’s such a star, anything Phelps does gets noticed… especially when he shows up to compete with red circular bruises all over his body.
Turns out, those bruise are remnants of cupping — an ancient therapy that supposedly helps improve circulation and reduces pain.
Kerry Jenni joined us live to educate us on this healing technique. She practices acupuncture and cupping in Montpelier.
