Why is “cupping” attracting Olympic athletes like Michael Phelps?

US swimmer Michael Phelps has extended his record as the most decorated Olympian of all-time with 23 gold medals. As his medal success has prompted, everyone is asking what are the purple circles dotting his shoulders and back.

And Phelps, who has been undergoing this treatment for a while now, definitely sees its benefits.
