Modern Massage Cupping for Health and Beauty is an introductory course in the application of silicone vacuum cups by massage therapists. This class discusses the history, application, purpose, and techniques of use of various massage cups (type & size considerations), safety and sanitation, indication and contraindications for various client health needs. The class is intended to provide manual therapists an introduction to the use and benefits of silicone or plastic vacuum cups for myofascial release and remodeling, support of circulation, reducing muscle pain, or even assisting with bronchial congestion. This is gliding (dry) cupping class as there is no needling performed as in acupuncture.
Well suited for home and practice use. Vacuum Massage and Cupping is a modern adaptation of the ancient Chinese Cupping Therapy. Cupping is a subtle, yet powerful addition to any practice.
