Chinese Cupping Therapy has grown in popularity here in the United States after Gwyneth Paltrow wore a low backed dress to the 2004 premiere of the ‘Anchorman’ with the tell tale marks of Chinese Cupping Therapy. What she knows and many Olympic athletes know is that cupping helps with back and neck pain. But the benefits run deeper than that.
What is cupping therapy? Cupping therapy is essentially applying a vacuum to the surface of the skin. The purpose is to relieve energetic stagnation. Restoring the smooth and harmonious flow of energy promotes optimal health and vitality.
Cupping can be easily taught and when administered properly is both safe and effective. In this class you will learn the basics of cupping, the history of its application, and how and when to apply it.
As an added bonus each participant will be sent home with a home cupping kit (as supplies last). A lucky door prize winner will be awarded a complete cupping kit.
