Why Does Michael Phelps Have HICKEYS?! Fire Cupping Therapy!

So we’re watching the Olympics over the weekend, and my girlfriend asked exactly what I was thinking: “Why does Michael Phelps have hickeys on his body?”

Supposedly it helps circulation and muscle recovery.  And it gives you hickeys all over your body.

Some of the staffers at BuzzFeed went in to check it out….and it’s so weird!!!
