This adorable short movie is thriving on various Chinese social media channels these weeks with millions of shares. Twin daughters in Hebei province are painting funny faces and cartoons on their father’s back cuppings.
Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in China in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage. It is widely practiced in Chinese society today.
