In the Rio 2016 Olympics, the round purple colored cupping marks on athletes’ bodies attracted significant public attention.
What were they and were the athletes really working on their sport injury? How could the ancient methods play such an important role in their achievements? Why did top international heroes choose cupping instead of other modern medical technology? It certainly reminds us of the need for further studying in the true value of the ancient healing method, which originated from Traditional Chinese medicine.
Every four years, thousands of athletes try their best to fulfill an Olympic medal dream. The unexpected sporting injuries often hold them back. Healing the injury, recovering from excessive physical training and maintaining high quality performance have become the main part of an athlete’s daily life.
