Cupping Massage

Used by multiple cultures for thousands of years, cupping therapy is believed to encourage blood flow in areas of the body that need relaxation and healing. Traditional methods use heat to warm cups that are then placed over the skin. As the cup cools, it creates a vacuum that gently draws the skin into the cup. Newer methods like vacuum therapy use mechanical aids to create suction.

Cupping CE courses are offered in both traditional and modern methods. Traditional methods include standard cupping and stronger suction methods like fire cupping. Modern methods include hand-pump suction and vacuum therapy. Oil-aided applications that allow the cup to be moved can be applied to most methods, and silicon cups can be used for facials and patients that bruise easily.
