Indonesian street therapists use buffalo horns for treatment

A shocking picture shows a dozen horns attached to a patient’s back on the streets of Jakarta, Indonesia.

Indonesian street healers are using buffalo horns as part of their alternative cupping therapy routine. The horns, which have been used in local cupping for thousands of years, are applied to patients skin.

Over time, healers have evolved to use bamboo and heated glass cups instead. It is thought that the suction technique helps to stimulate the flow of energy.
