Cupping therapy is reputed to increase circulation, relaxes soft tissue, draws stagnation, pathogenic factors and toxins out of the body and releases a many issues that cause pain.
In most massage modalities, therapists most commonly use positive pressure created with their fingers, wrists and body weight to work the underlying tissue. With cupping, suction is used to provide a negative pressure, allowing you to work by lifting the tissues. Cupping can be used to relieve acute and chronic pain, stiff muscles, anxiety, fatigue and is sometimes used to respond to migraines, rheumatism, and even cellulite.
You will leave the class with new techniques to market in your practice. This course is a great addition to any therapist's list of services. Sign up today to learn how cupping can enhance your massage practice!
