With Olympic athletes such as Michael Phelps proudly displaying their “Cup Kisses” to the world, cupping therapy has become the hottest health trend in recent years. Now you can take advantage of this high level of public interest by becoming a certified cupping therapist.
This three day hands on certification workshop covers a review of the history of vacuum therapies, applications, contra-indications, client intake, assessment, charting, and treatment techniques. The practitioner comes to view the client through the cup, learning to discern information that the body reveals as it is being treated to assess and develop a treatment protocol.
There is also detailed focus on athletic performance, pathology, deep tissue issues, the lymphatic system and conditions resulting in edema, neuropathy as well as the use of magnets to accelerate results.
A great workshop for those who want it all at once; providing a solid foundation for effective evaluation and treatment using VacuTherapy theory, tools and techniques.
In addition, the workshop will include MediCupping™. Medicupping replaces the manual vacuum equipment with an amazing machine to create the suction and pumping movements that are normally done with manual vacuum pistols, to create a soothing, consistent and effective treatment without strain on the therapist or client. The versatile and dynamic movements quickly and comfortably accomplish goals such as pain management, athletic performance enhancement, body contouring, detoxification and scar reduction.
