While my feet were being carefully handled, a nearby patron was having the evil spirits sucked out of his back using bamboo cups. Apparently they use fire in some way to superheat the air inside the cup, which is slapped down onto your skin before it cools. The cooling air contracts and creates suction, which makes the entire cup stick to your skin. I didn't try it, but from the marks those leave on your back (and legs, and face, and anywhere else you stick them), it looks like those evil spirits put up quite a fight on the way out. Thankfully I didn't have cause to resort to any Eastern medicine, as there is some pretty wacky stuff over there.
