Why do some of the world’s top athletes look as though they’ve been on the receiving end of a brutal paintball firing squad?
US swimmer Michael Phelps’s skin is strewn with livid polka dots, and his compatriot, the gymnast Alex Naddour is also sporting circular welts.
But this is not the result of a corporate team-building exercise. The athletes are among the latest adherents to the traditional Chinese medicine treatment known as “cupping”.
Other celebrity and sports endorsements followed, with Floyd Mayweather, Andy Murray, Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Aniston among those sporting the circular suction marks on their skins.
Phelps told USA Today: “That’s been the secret that I have had through this year that keeps me healthy. It’s been better than any money I’ve spent on anything else.”

HOW CUPPING WORKS
Cupping therapy is an alternative Chinese medicinal practice used for healing muscles. Several high-profile Olympic athletes, including USA swimmer Michael Phelps, are using it. How it works:
Fist-sized circular cups usually glass, are laced on the skin. The cups have small valves that attach to a handheld suction pump, which vacuums air from the cup.
Cups are left in place for 5-10 minutes, and sometimes dragged lightly across the skin. The vacuum sucks the skin into the cup, separating it from the tissue below. The process can cause blood vessels in the skin to rupture, causing circular purple bruises to appear.
Experts say this treatment increases blood flow to the affected area, promoting muscle healing. Negative suction releases muscle trigger points and breaks up scar tissue.
