Gemma Collins ditched her clothes to undergo an alternative treatment after being left in excruciating pain.
The 41-year-old TOWIE legend has been heading in for cupping therapy sessions in a bid to relieve the pain she's felt since returning from her winter trip to Israrel.
The GC took to Instagram to share a snap which showed her lying on her back with the cups attached to her skin – as well as the bruises which had just started forming.

The reality star revealed she wanted to try cupping after being inspired by Hollywood actress Gwyneth Paltrow, who runs a famous Goop health and lifestyle brand.
Cupping therapy is an alternative medicine which sees heated cups applied to the skin with suction in order to allegedly ease the likes of pain and inflammation.
Gemma said she stripped off for the process and told fans in the caption: "If it’s good enough for Gwyneth [Paltrow] it’s good enough for me."
She showed off her natural beauty in a short clip where she said she felt like a "health goddess" for getting the cupping massage.

Gemma said: "I’m having cupping. Gwyneth swears by this. Will this turn me into a supermodel?
"So, good news is, 48 hours in after my first physio and literally I’m ready to walk up Kilimanjaro.
"Now I’m having the cupping, I’m just a health goddess. I’m going to be a health goddess.
"This guy to get me walking again in 24 hours is unbelievable."

Gemma has been suffering a mystery foot problem, and she's already brought in a personal trainer, physiotherapist and spiritual healer to sort things out – she's also tried acupuncture.
After her treatment, she said: "I'm in agony. Oh my God, is this man the G-O-D. One session I'm walking, I'm up, I'm round the kitchen.
"I can't tell you the agony I've been in it's like a curse. I don't know what's happened. Whoever put the curse on me take it off. It's been nothing but hassle the minute I stepped back in the UK."
