Glass Cupping

cup4Cupping is a subtle yet powerful therapy that compliments many healing modalities. It can be implemented on its own or combined with other therapies such as acupuncture, herbal medicine or massage.

By creating suction and negative pressure, cupping is used to: stimulate and drain excess fluids and toxins, loosen adhesions and lift connective tissue, bring blood flow to stagnant skin and muscles and stimulate internal organ function and the peripheral nervous system.

Massage cupping can help alleviate pain, decrease swelling, increase range of motion and speed up the healing process.

For practitioners, cupping requires only simple and inexpensive instruments, is relatively easy to learn, is time and energy efficient and achieves excellent results.

On this course you were learn how to use and apply both the glass and the plastic cups.  Glass cupping is usually used when a client requests a full cupping treatment, whilst plastic cups are usually used to complement sports massage and associated therapies aimed at correcting muscular dysfunction.
