How cool! Kim Kardashian is taking a cue from Michael Phelps and trying out cupping, an ancient treatment she hopes will alleviate her ‘major’ neck pain. Click her to see the pics of the reality star using the U.S. Olympian’s trusted method of pain relief.
Kim Kardashian, 35, shared her first treatment with her Snapchat fans on Aug. 8, saying that she was trying everything she could to make her sore neck feel better, including using Michael Phelps’, 31, favorite method of relieving pain after swimming.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star’s neck has been bothering her a lot lately, so much so she asked her fans for advice on the best pillow to help with her discomfort. Kim then revealed on Snapchat, that she had what appeared to be a massage therapist and a Chinese medicine practitioner over to help her out with both acupuncture and cupping.
“We’re going to do acupuncture on my feet and my hands to try to help my neck,” Kim explained to her followers. Though she did post a snap of the needles after they were inserted into her feet, she had first begged to know if it was going to hurt. Aww. Luckily, she seemed to take it like a champ!
Even though Kim showed the cups that her practitioner was preparing to apply to her body, she did not share the results of the treatment, which can be pretty severe — probably a bummer to fans who wanted to see how it turned out. What we might have seen, if Kim had shared the final product, were the big purple marks associated with the treatment that were clearly visible on Michael’s body while he was competing at the Rio Olympics. Apparently the cupping didn’t help the reality star, as she reported still feeling sore the next day. We hope you find something to relieve your pain soon Kim!
