CUPPING

Event date: 5/17/2019 9:00 AM - 3:30 PM Export event

 

Although it is an ancient practice, cupping has been in the public spotlight in recent years because of its popularity with Olympic and professional athletes as well as Hollywood celebrities.  How does cupping work? Cupping is often called the inverse of massage; suction cups are placed on the skin and used to apply pressure to pull skin, tissue and muscles outward and partway into the cup. Discoloration typically occurs when there is an injury or energetic blockage in the area.  Purple circles on the body are not bruises and are not painful.

 

Cupping is often used to seek relief from stress, back and other pain, allergies, anxiety, muscle aches or fatigue. It is also used to remove toxins from the body and stimulate the flow of fresh blood and energy (qi) to an area.

This course will cover the methodology and history of cupping, including benefits, contraindications and an explanation of how cupping uses the body’s largest organ (the skin) to detox and heal.  The course will be part lecture, part hands-on practice.

Students should bring: fitted bed sheet or massage table sheet, flat sheet for draping and a bath towel.  Dress comfortably. Massage tables and cupping equipment will be provided.
