Lionel Richie has joined the long list of celebrities on the cupping craze. His daughter Nicole told Ellen DeGeneres on Monday she got her dad to try it - and he did not enjoy it. 'He’s never had cupping. He has now, obviously,' the reality star said. I’m helping him is really what I’m doing. Enriching his life. For sure, you know he’s getting a little bit older.' The 33-year-old revealed that she makes her children undergo the alternate therapy, which involves pressing small cups made of glass, earthenware or bamboo into the skin and creating suction, supposedly to promote blood flow. 'The cupping opens up the blood flow and opens up the energy,' she said. I get cupping all the time. My kids get it.'
