It looked like she perhaps tried to cover the marks with foundation or self tanner, but they were still noticeable. Jen didn’t seem to think that anyone could see them, or she just didn’t care. The marks are a result of a holistic treatment known as cupping. But, what exactly is cupping, and why does it have everyone talking about Jen?
Cupping is an ancient method of traditional Chinese medicine that has been around for a long time. It is known to promote “wellness,” and involves using glass cups to create a vacuum effect on the skin, which improves blood flow. Cupping is most usually used to treat things like congestion and respiratory inflammation. Lots of stars use cupping to detox and draw impurities away from the body, although not all experts agree that it does anything to detox the body.
Cupping is all the rage among celebrities, and it is also gaining popularity with the general public as well. Some celebrities who are embracing cupping as a holistic treatment method include Gwyneth Paltrow, Victoria Beckham, Jessica Simpson, David Arquette, and many others. Jennifer is said to have been inspired by Halle Berry’s recent shocking pregnancy announcement and she supposedly realized that it really isn’t too late. Whether or not that is true remains to be seen, since we all know Jen isn’t talking about that area of her life, at least not with the media!
So, does cupping really help with fertility? Experts are divided on the subject. Some say that women that have a medical reason for fertility troubles, the cupping or other alternative treatments won’t help with fertility.
However, for women who are otherwise healthy and looking for a fertility boost, cupping might help. It is sort of like acupuncture therapy, or massage therapy. For healthy women who are experiencing unexplained infertility, these alternative methods can help women deal with stress or tension, and thereby can help make it easier to get pregnant.
Of course, if there is an underlying medical issue that is keeping a woman from getting pregnant, that will have to be dealt with first before pregnancy will be possible. So, it is possible that Jen might be using the cupping therapy to boost her fertility, she might also be doing it to relieve stress, remove toxins from her body, or just boost her overall wellness. There is no sure fire indication that she is doing it for fertility reasons.
