Jennifer Aniston is reportedly undergoing the cupping procedure in an attempt to "encourage fertility", following advice from Gwyneth Paltrow.
The actress attended the premiere of her movie Call Me Crazy recently displaying strange circular red marks on her back.
It has since been revealed these are the result of cupping therapy, an ancient technique thought to relieve tension and improve circulation.
Sources have now revealed that the 44-year-old is undergoing the procedure in the hope it could increase her chances of having a baby with fiancé Justin Theroux.
"Jen and Justin are keen to get pregnant sooner rather than later. Jen's a fan of cupping and has had it before to assist with anxiety. But it can also help boost fertility and it could certainly be one of the reasons she's having it done now," a source told British magazine Grazia.
"Jen's always said she wants to conceive naturally and is very open to exploring natural therapies to help her. She's been inspired by Halle's recent news, and apparently it was Gwyneth Paltrow who told her how cupping can encourage fertility."
Jennifer has made no secret of her desire to have a family, and has spoken before about her longing to have a child of her own some day. Sources say the star has become more radiant and chilled since starting the treatment. Cupping is thought to help fertility by easing congestion and stress.
"Jen loves it, she says it's been brilliant to cleanse her system and she feels amazing. She's already got an incredible glow about her so it is a wonder she's not pregnant already. She's being optimistic about things, but she's disappointed not to have had any luck so far. Justin tells her it's only a matter of time and is doing everything he can to keep her stress free," the source continued. "He's incredibly supportive and is so excited about becoming a dad, but he's not pressuring her in any way."
