Cupping And Why Olympians Are Doing It

This post was created by our Shop on AOL curators, who share the best products at great prices.

Ever since Olympians like Michael Phelps showed up to Rio with purple and brown circular marks all over their bodies, cupping has become all the rage. Now it's even been revealed that celebs like Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Aniston rely on this technique too. So you're probably wondering...what exactly is cupping, and why is everyone doing it?

This ancient practice is said to aid blood circulation throughout body and even relieve aches and pains. Cupping works to naturally relieve soreness and even boost athletic performance (no Advil or medication required).

It turns out that you don't even need to hit the spa to try cupping yourself. Get the benefits of cupping--and decompress with a massage with the TENS 16-Mode Electronic Pulse Massager. This handheld massager includes a Cupping Mode in addition to 15 other stress-relieving massage modes.

Pick your mode from the easy-to-read LCD screen, set your preferred intensity, and let the massager work on your sore muscles and injuries. It's small enough to bring with you anywhere for impromptu massages while on vacation or in front of the TV.

It's also currently 73% off and costs only $52.98, which includes free shipping to the continental United States. It doesn't hurt to have something in common with world-class athletes.
