Most people would cringe at the sight of 2 large leeches happily sucking blood from any part of your body. I would too. But not this you lady who was happy to let these two slimy creatures feed on her blood at the spot where she seems to have a skin disease of sort. I guess she must have exhausted all means of modern medicine to cure it and and now she is resorting to this traditional mean with the hope of curing her ailment.
There she is smiling at the sight of the two leeches doing their job. The spouse was definitely supportive of her.
This guy showed me how it was done using the vacuum pump.
Blood oozing out from the pin pricks.
This guy complained of a shoulder ache and so the cups were applied there. Since the skin or blood vessels were not punctured, there was no blood letting involved. It was just for 'buang angin'.
While taking the photographs the others around asked me to try it out for myself so that I can experience it and this write better about it.
How many cups were there? The suction was quite strong.
After they were removed, you can clearly see the welts on my back. He did it for free so I bought a bottle of his massage oil which cost me RM10.00.
