Lena Dunham might not be the best example for functioning with Western medicine. Lena has turned to ancient Chinese therapy hoping it will help her with crippling back pain.
Yesterday, Lena revealed she’s more eager to try a traditional approach rather than an alternative remedy, in seeking help with a chiropractic issue.
The traditional treatment involves creating pressure to the skin with heated cups, in order to speed up health-giving by increasing blood stream.
“If someone is under stress, or they’ve suffered a physical trauma like a pulled shoulder, the energy in their body can become stagnated,” explains Ian Stones, an acupuncturist in Farnham.
Lena shared her experience during a trip to the clinic, writing on her Twitter page, “Bet the teenage boy who just said something sexual to me from a car didn’t know I was hobbling to the chiropractor.”
Also, Dunham captioned a new picture on her Instagram page “Da (sic) cure.” The picture shows her back with several ring-marks left by the treatment.
