In Indonesia, an unusual approach to healing and relaxation is practiced by street healers which make use of heated water buffalo horns.

The heated horns are used as special cups on the skin for a couple of minutes and act like suctions while targeting ailments such as irregular blood flow, inflammation, pain, relaxation and well-being and for deep tissue massage; It is also believed that by creating a suction through the skin, good energy balance is increased in the body and is much better than any other cupping method available.

The Buffalo healing process leaves dark red looped shaped marks after they are removed, as shown in the pictures and it may look a bit weird but they say that the result is satisfying. They claim that the technique has been used for as long as they can remember and with good results of course because of its curative properties.
