(Photo by Al Bello/Getty Images) 5 places to get bruised like Michael Phelps Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps took home his 19th gold medal on Sunday night, but the purple marks covering his back nearly stole the show. The circular bruises are the result of cupping, the ancient Chinese massage therapy technique that uses heated glass cups to suction the skin for minutes at a time. While its benefits have never been scientifically proven, devotees (including Gwyneth Paltrow, who displayed a constellation of cupping marks on her back during a 2004 film premiere) believe the alternative medicine increases blood flow and stimulates muscle recovery. The procedure is covered by most acupuncture insurance clauses, so you don’t need to be an Olympian to get treated. Here’s where to go to get bruised (you know, intentionally) all across Los Angeles. If you’re in Hollywood: Sogang Acupuncture & Massage The waiting room may be decorated with gifts from Hollywood insiders (check out the giant Asylum movie poster from John Carpenter), but this place is far more traditional than trendy. If you’re looking for the full-on therapy treatment, go with the $75 Sogang Circulation Therapy, which combines cupping with needle-based acupuncture, magnet therapy, and massage. If you’re in Beverly Hills: The Spa on Rodeo One of L.A.’s most high-end spas has jumped on the cupping bandwagon, too — but can you blame them? The Botox-averse can invest in a series of facial cupping rejuvenation treatments, which purport to increase circulation and reduce wrinkles (The downside: bruises on your face). A series of 12 treatments, received twice a week for six weeks, will cost you $400. If you’re in Silver Lake: Golden Folk Wellness Golden Folk is a self-described community space that offers cupping therapy in addition to Reiki sound baths and medicinal readings aimed at curing creative blocks. Herb-infused water and billowing white canopies greet patients who come to experience the $80 hour-long fire cupping sessions, which use fire rather than mechanical devices to create the distinctive suctions.

El juez titular entonces aprob� a instancias de los administradores acabar la urbanizaci�n para no deteriorar el activo, ya que las viviendas no se pod�an vender. Para ello se contrat� a una tercera empresa, Edificaciones Artemisa, que asume por 10 millones acabar las obras en parte ya acometidas y que en su d�a se hab�an presupuestado por un total de 7 millones. A�os despu�s el juzgado descubre que esa empresa "pertenece o est� estrechamente relacionada" al due�o de Luxender. La cifra inicial pactada con Artemisa m�s que se duplicar�a, con 24 millones como cr�dito contra la masa, es decir, como gastos dentro del propio concurso, los primeros con derecho a cobrar antes que los acreedores. Con los informes del perito, la administraci�n concursal consider� como mal ejecutadas la mayor�a de las actuaciones anteriores que encarg� reconstruir a la empresa del mismo due�o engordando de esa forma la factura. A las subcontratas no se les plante� la posibilidad de reparaci�n, sino que directamente a esas pymes se les reclam� el pago de los defectos o descontarlo de la deuda con Luxender. Una situaci�n que provoc� decenas de impugnaciones del informe concursal. Los administradores tambi�n intentaron que el juez aprobase dos veces el traspaso de bienes, uno a Artemisa y otro con una ampliaci�n de capital de otra sociedad, que el magistrado rechaz� al considerar que con ello se posibilitaba sustraerlo a la acci�n de los acreedores. El juez apunta que el plan no cuaj� por el error del propio empresario al creer que ya hab�a conseguido su objetivo tras aprobarse el informe concursal, que convierte los cr�ditos concursales en cosa juzgada. Sin embargo eso no ocurre con los cr�ditos contra la masa.
