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.
Tui na is a quintessential Chinese bodywork technique. It is more rhythmic and incorporates more stroke types than acupressure but follows the same belief in energy meridians. It places particular emphasis on opening up joints to allow the flow of chi, or vital energy, through the body.
In continuing education, tui na may be taught on its own or incorporated into a larger healing system. It is often paired with other Chinese medicine techniques like cupping and herbalism. Because tui na is considered an integral part of medical practices in China, courses in clinical application and sports massage adaptation may be available.
