What You Learn

Cupping Therapy is both a traditional and modern manual therapy modality. Using vacuum suction via a range of different methods, the therapist can create a highly effective response in the myofascial structures of the body. The results of cupping therapy include improved tissue elasticity, decreased pain, increased range of motion and improved circulatory function. This workshop will equip therapists with the ability to employ cupping techniques using both the traditional flame cupping method and the modern vacuum pump cups.
