Cupping Massage Therapy Course

Cupping is a great tool to have as a massage therapist or health care practitioner, it helps blend old world healing with today’s practice. The benefits to your patients are varied and can include; increased circulation, decrease fascial restrictions, increase range of motion and many other benefits all with minimal effort from you as a therapist. For you a therapist, it is a fantastic method for self-healing, maintenance and cupping will help extend your career. Cupping is a technique whereby a vacuum (negative pressure) is created in the cup, drawing the skin (fascia) up into the cup and separating the layers of fascia. The vacuum effect allows new blood to the area, because the layers of fascia are
now separated the blood is free to flow to the areas that have been adhered and stagnate. This allows your patients to have increased circulation, faster healing and the possibility of decreased adhesions.
