Modern Cupping Therapy Workshop May 11-13, 9-5 p.m.
Modern cupping therapy can be added into any massage and bodywork modality. This course includes education in the history, theory, and application of modern cupping therapy, along with a demonstration of specific techniques. It enhances the benefits of massage, decreases strain on the practitioner, and increases revenues through “add-on” services.
This technique has been created for bodywork and is therapeutic for many conditions. Modern cupping is effective in relieving chronic pain at old injury sites and can address conditions such as: fibromyalgia, diabetes, pre- and post-op edema and inflammation, chronic edema, scar tissue and adhesions, and cellulite. This versatile technique mimics massage movements ranging from deep tissue and myofascial release to the light pumping movements of lymphatic drainage. Used regularly, this therapy is a terrific approach to promoting wellness for our clients.
This three-day workshop is fun and informative, with plenty of hands-on activity. Education will include safety and contraindications, conditions that benefit from the modern cupping techniques, integration into existing modalities, and applications for specific conditions. Don’t miss the opportunity to add this to your “toolbox.”
