Photos of Carrie modeling Cupping and Scrapping for Discover Taipei

This was a very intense photo shoot. It was held at the Taipei City hospital-Linsen Branch and administered by Dr. Tzu-Ying Lai. Carrie is a wonderful model and friend. It is amazing how radiant she looks throughout this uncomfortable experience.

    Looks pretty bad… I wouldn’t want to get that done! But looks like Carrie took it like a trooper!

    Carrie looks stunning. Some people can make anything look good and Miss Marshall deserves a medal for this one.

    I can see why you felt a little hesitant to post these, but honestly, they’re terrific. And really, it wasn’t all that bad. I’ve satisfied my own natural curiosity about these two ancient practices. The cupping was uncomfortable. I won’t do scraping again. And the marks were gone a few days later.

    Glad to hear that your back is better now Carrie. I was worried there for a while.

    I was worried too! These photos are almost painful to look at!

    i’ve done the cupping thing many times, it’s not so bad nor painful, but you end up looking like you were attacked by a giant octopus.

    can someone tell me what the purpose of these practices are? i’m confused by the ouchiness of them.

    glad you weren’t permanently scarred, Carrie. yikes!

    Gak! This can’t be good for you. I recommend instead a blackberry cane rubdown followed by a refreshing vinegar spritz. Breathtaking.

    I am wondering what these practises are for? Could you not get someone to give you a hickey for the same affect? What is the scraping for? What is the main purpose of these procedures?

    My back hurts now. The redness from the scraping looks really painful!

    I’ve had these methods done to me by my parents because I’m Chinese, so whenever I get sick I have to get this treatment. It doesn’t actually hurt… okay, the last one I got hurt, but other than that, it’s not too bad.

    The purpose of these “practices” as you call them is to get “bad air” out of your body. Bad air supposedly makes you sick with a cold or so over time. These practices are also used to relieve pain. If you get these treatments and the color of your back is dark pink or purple, it is because you are sick probably with a cold or so. If the color turns out light light pink, then it’s nothing serious. Hope I helped.
