Victoria se aplica ventosas

Las ventosas son un método de tratamiento que consiste en succionar la piel haciendo vacío con un frasco, vasija o recipiente, hechos de diferentes materiales, con el fin de estimular una región del cuerpo y obtener un efecto terapéutico.
La obtención del vacío se realiza generalmente con la ayuda de fuego para consumir el oxígeno dentro del recipiente o la obtención de vacío mecánicamente succionando el aire mediante dispositivos especializados.
Los principales efectos de la aplicación de ventosas son la activación de la circulación de sangre y energía y la relajación muscular.
As we can see in this picture of Victoria, she has tried 'cupping'. According to DailyMail, Victoria took the advice of Gwyneth Paltrow and opted for this ancient Chinese detoxifying treatment known as 'cupping'.
About 'cupping': In a typical cupping session, glass cups are warmed using a cotton ball or other flammable substance, which is soaked in alcohol, let, then placed inside the cup. Burning a substance inside the cup removes all the oxygen, which creates a vacuum.
As the substance burns, the cup is turned upside-down so that the practitioner can place the cup over a specific area. The vacuum created by the lack of oxygen anchors the cup to the skin and pulls it upward on the inside of the glass as the air inside the jar cools. Drawing up the skin is believed to open up the skin’s pores, which helps to stimulate the flow of blood, balances and realigns the flow of qi, breaks up obstructions, and creates an avenue for toxins to be drawn out of the body.
Depending on the condition being treated, the cups will be left in place from 5 to 10 minutes. Several cups may be placed on a patient’s body at the same time. Some practitioners will also apply small amounts of medicated oils or herbal oils to the skin just before the cupping procedure, which lets them move the cups up and down particular acupoints or meridians after they have been applied.
