This 2 hour course will introduce cupping as a modality to use in the treatment room to relieve of the symptoms of stress clients are complaining about. We will look at the common symptoms of stress and how some of them are within scope of practice and others are outside of it. Indications of cupping, and how these indications prove useful to us and our clients. For safety, we will look at the contraindications and safety precautions around cupping. We will go on to talk about and explain the basic techniques used in cupping, and then demonstrate how to do them. From there, we will talk about how to apply these techniques to the client in a cohesive treatment pattern, which we will demonstrate as attendees follow along.

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.
