CUPPING MASSAGE For the HEAD and FACE
This modality allows for a unique approach to the fascia and sinews. Cupping has an ability to affect much deeper tissue, remove fascial restrictions and move fluid, and increase range of motion, lending itself to be an effective treatment for several facial ailments. We will specifically target sinus issues, headaches, TMJ dysfunction in addition to learning more general techniques that can be universally applied to other ailments of the face and head. We will explore some Traditional Chinese Medicine philosophy to better understand some of the commonly seen ailments and how our treatment can bridge western and eastern approaches to assessment.
We will combine Traditional Chinese Medicine massage techniques with Cupping Massage, Gua Sha techniques and block therapy etc., to present very effective and holistic approaches to common disorders we often see.
Participants will leave with a thorough and more holistic view of disorders of the face and head, as well as a new tool set to effectively treat them. Students incorporate a different view of treating sinew and fascia as a whole.
Note: Health professionals require training and certification to be covered within liability insurance. Traditional cupping (fire cupping) is restricted to Acupuncturists and TCM practitioners.
