Intro to Massage Cupping
Most therapists use pressure created by their fingers, wrists and body weight. Massage cupping therapists use suction created by the cups to provide a negative pressure, allowing you to work MUCH, MUCH deeper with no client discomfort and NO STRAIN on your body. In this dynamic course you will learn a full body lymphatic drainage treatment using the cups. (No more compression bandages - remember, you are using negative pressure!) You will also learn a terrific non-surgical face-lift technique using "mini-cups" and a wonderful reflexology technique using specialized magnet therapy cups. You will leave the class with three brand new protocols to market in your practice.
All class materials are provided including a comprehensive manual that is included with the price of tuition. Cupping sets are provided for use during the class and will be available to purchase after the class.
This class takes place from 8am-8pm.
This course offers 12 live hands on massage therapy continuing education hours.
"Cupping is an ancient healing art form has found new life in the modern world of holistic health. As a therapist, whether your practice consists of spa treatments, therapeutic medical massage or both, cupping will become your go to addition for your practice. Every treatment I give has some form of cupping in it. Nothing produces the results like cupping no matter what modality I use. The benefits of cupping are not limited to the client. The therapists hands and arms will be less stressed, which extends your career as a therapist. Cupping saves you time, five minutes of cupping is the same as 30 minutes of deep tissue massage. Economically cupping is a sound investment; cupping as an add on charge, new treatment options and a great way to sell on-going treatment packages. The negative pressure of cupping softens tight muscles and tones attachments, loosens adhesions, lifts connective tissue, brings hydration and fresh blood flow into the tissues, all the while draining excessive fluids and toxins by opening the lymph pathways."
