“Shocked my system with a vegan diet, special Pu-erh tea from China, and cupping since friday!” Jessica Simpson wrote Sunday night. (Pu-erh tea is widely touted as a weight-loss drink.)
The giddy-sounding Price of Beauty host added: “Who am I right now? This might be too clean!”
A few minutes later, 29-year-old Simpson, who tried out meditation in the Far East while filming The Price of Beauty, extolled the virtues of cupping, an ancient Chinese ritual in which cups are therapeutically applied to the skin in a practice similar to accupressure.
“Has anyone ever tried cupping? When u know you are doing something good for ur body the meditation creates intense visions,” she raved. “Love it!”
She then explained that she had worked with “Master Wang the healer” over the weekend, adding links to MedicineBuddha.com and Zenandtea.com.
Update: Simpson then explained: “Just so everyone is clear.. this has NOTHING to do with weight! It is about understanding my body through hydration and alkalinty.”
