ABOUT THIS COURSE

Cupping therapy is a form of therapy where suction cups are placed around various parts of the body.  The main principle behind cupping is that the suction created encourages blood and lymph flow to promote the healing of a broad range of medical ailments.  There are two main types of cupping: dry and wet.  Dry cupping is when the therapy relies solely on the creation of suction.  In dry cupping there are two main ways that people are treated.  Flash cupping is where the cups are placed and removed very quickly without being moved around.  The other technique is known by a few different names, such as sliding cupping or gliding cupping.  Cups are placed on the body and moved around without breaking contact with the skin, increasing circulation.  This workshop will demonstrate mechanical cupping and will focus on manual application techniques. 

Entry Requirements: 

Applicants must hold a qualification in sports massage, neuromuscular therapy, physical therapy or physiotherapy.
