I Tried At-Home Cupping Therapy for Sore Muscles and Was Surprisingly Impressed I was skeptical about the trendy "suction cup" treatment, but turns out you don't have to be an Olympian to reap the soothing results. Cupping was first widely noticed last summer during the Olympics when Michael Phelps and crew arrived with dark circles all over their chest and back . And pretty soon, even Kim K was getting in on the action with facial cupping . But I, being no professional athlete nor reality star, was never that interested—until I found out about Lure Essentials Chakra Cupping Therapy Kit ($40; lureessentials.com ) as an at-home cupping option. While science-backed benefits of cupping therapy are lacking , the process is said to relieve tight and sore muscles and improve range of motion by drawing blood to the surface. Since I wasn't training for a marathon or anything, I wasn't sure cupping would have any noticeable effects on me. But I thought the at-home, less-expensive kit was worth testing out. (Related: I Tried "Facial Cupping" to See If I'd Get Skin Like Kim Kardashian ) I recently started getting back into weightlifting —after a summer-long hiatus—so I'm often sore after my workouts. For two weeks, I tested the cups' effectiveness for easing that, hoping to avoid being forced into a rest day when I really didn't need it.
