Jennifer Aniston received a great deal of publicity yesterday – no, not for divorcing Brad Pitt or marrying Justin. More unusual, the star was photographed with ‘circles on her back’. These circles, unknown to some in the US, are marks left from cupping an ancient technique of Chinese Medicine. Cupping involves having glass or plastic cups placed strategically on the patient’s back and creating suction. This leaves a very distinctive pink or purple circle or streak in that area. It is excellent for stress reduction, pain relief, allergies and circulation Good for Jennifer!!
