She finishes off by throwing in a bit of cupping. This involves waving a lighted wand inside a bamboo cup to create a hot vacuum, and then placing it on the back.

Nice and clean room but noisy since our room is right on the stairway. Late arriving guests or early risers did not give it a damn if you were sleeping or not.
