Advanced Cupping For Fascia Release - Edmonton, AB


Workshop Description

This is the second level of cupping practice for those that have taken the Professional Cupping Therapies course. It will be a day filled with a mixture of both demonstration and practice where you will explore:

  • fascia and its tendino-muscular meridians (the original fascia trains)
  • classical Chinese theory and treatments of Bi (arthritis) syndromes
  • key acupoint points and stimulation to affect pain and tissues and to treat disordered fascia
  • stretching and active release techniques, using  fascia cup techniques to create deep and immediate release of fascial tension and promote body alignment
  • ear reflexology and seeding (teaching and practice)
  • Gua Sha for fascia/tendon softening and acupoint stimulation
  • Moxibustion therapy: building warmth in joints and acupoints
  • topical therapies: essential oils and Chinatown favourites
  • compress therapies and healing metals: from anthroposophic medicine's tradition and practices
  • aroma drop cupping spinal and reflexology treatment
