Kaley Cuoco Shares Painful Video of Her Cupping and Scraping Therapy
By Paige Gawley
Kaley Cuoco is undergoing some painful health treatments.
Following a tough workout, the 33-year-old actress opted to get some body work done, even taking to her Instagram Story to give fans a peek at the painful experience. Cuoco sought the help of Flory, whom she called "an angel," to do the scraping and cupping treatments.
Flory started Cuoco's session by administering Gua Sha, a Chinese technique that involves scraping the skin with a tool in order to improve circulation.
"My angel Flory literally scraping my legs and hips," Cuoco, who said her "hips and legs hurt 24/7," captioned one video. "I’m so tight I can barely bend or turn. I haven’t been able to actually move in weeks."
Next the former Big Bang Theory star moved on to cupping therapy, which involves putting cups on one's skin to create suction and can help with pain, inflammation, blood flow and relaxation.
"I mean, that is just ridiculous. Oh my goodness gracious. Oh my gosh," Cuoco groaned in pain as the cups were being removed.
"My legs hurt all the time," she captioned one clip.
In a series of videos taken in her car, Cuoco said she felt "absolutely wrecked" after her workout and therapies.
"I don’t even know how to function right now," she said. "... I got my a** handed to me [at the gym], and then I came over and got a bunch of body work, which guys, I have got to do more of."
"I mean, I go a few weeks and then I end up not being able to walk," she continued. "I think my body just starts to shut down from just complete overuse. And if I don’t take care of it, like, I’m gonna crumble. You’ve got to take care of yourself in order to be able to take care of the things around you."
This isn't the first time Cuoco has been open about her health with her fans. In January 2018, just days after her wedding to Karl Cook, Cuoco underwent a pre-planned shoulder surgery.
