From the moment the first needle was inserted my nerves vanished and I have to admit I struggled not to space out. I wanted to be able to be a second pair of ears for Sir as there can be a lot to take in and I wanted to be with it enough to ask questions of my own too! Then after the needles had been removed and the cups had been placed, I heard discussions of my blood trickling into the cup and I was so happy but it was a shame it was my back because I really wanted to see what it looked like!
All in all the whole experience for me was an eye opener, whilst saying it was life changing is a little over dramatic, something definitely clicked in my mind. I spent the rest of the afternoon with a daft grin on my face and the high from the experience lasted for days which sadly meant when the drop came it hit hard…very hard. The marks themselves were wonderful, I couldn’t help but have a quick look every time I passed a mirror just to have another quick look which always resulted in me grinning like the Cheshire Cat! The one surprising result was the tension in my neck and shoulders had vanished too, I’d never really believed the traditional effects of cupping however now I’m rethinking that, although I’m sure the endorphins has a lot to do with that too.
Finally, I want to say a huge thank you to Mz Mutley from both of us. It’s wonderful to not only meet someone who is so passionate about their art but to meet someone who is willing to take their time to share and teach someone with such enthusiasm was truly wonderful.
