Interested in a unique Cupping Therapy course that does not focus on any one 'type' of Cupping Therapy? Rather than focus on the types of cups available in the marketplace, this course will provide you with an intrinsic understanding of the treatments that you can provide using Cupping Therapy. This approach provides therapists with the knowledge and skill on how to use a number of different types of cups to achieve the therapeutic outcomes they desire for their patients. 

This Full Body Cupping course will cover the techniques useful for treating patients who have a variety of musculoskeletal disorders. We will explore the contribution that Cupping Therapy can have on a patient's pain symptoms and movement restrictions, and how attention to this might serve to alleviate those symptoms. 

In addition to reviewing the history and benefits of cupping, we will provide an overview of the various types of cupping treatments available as well as review how different types of cups can be used, the research related to cupping therapies, contraindications for cupping therapy, and condition specific treatments.

At the completion of this workshop, you will have the skills and information to broaden your practice by incorporating cupping therapies for your patients.
