Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson stole the spotlight this week after he showed off results of cupping therapy on the back of his well-built physique.
As shared by the former WWE Superstar, he tried cupping for the first time, and interestingly enough, he revealed that it wasn’t such a terrible experience at all!
Dwayne shared a selfie of his back, which showed many red circular spots going down the spine as a result of the treatment. “First time cupper over here 🙋🏽♂️ Looks more gnarly than it feels, but over all I enjoyed the therapy,” the “Hobbs & Shaw” star remarked.
He added, “Always looking for new techniques to keep this 250 million year old dinosaur 🦖 body balanced and optimal with not only all my past injuries but my daily grinding family/work/training/repeat schedule. It all takes its toll, so being proactive is critical. We only get one body, so we gotta take care of it.”
Dwayne’s post received tons of reactions amongst his followers and netizens on social media. In this case, his replies section was also flooded with comments from Muslims all around the globe, who shared that the cupping therapy is also part of the sunnah practice of Prophet Muhammad and his companions.
