Come and learn to massage soft tissue using soft silicone massage cups and get great results for your clients with less physical demand on you, the therapist! Cupping massage opens up a whole new world of benefit for the client and the therapist. This class provides a comprehensive introduction to soft tissue mobilization using soft silicone massage cups. The degree of control in using these cups allows from the gentlest of release of a painful trigger point to a deep myofascially oriented stretch of the tissue. The scope of practice for the application of these cups is for healthy adults.
These cups are easy to apply and manipulate for a massage-like experience that easily integrates right into your manual work. Cupping massage provides a kind of reverse massage, pulling up through the tissue, creating stretch and increasing hydration and blood flow. Pain and tension are reduced in a fraction of the time and with much less discomfort than with other manual techniques. Five minutes of cupping massage can relax the tissue as much as 30 minutes of manual work, while static cupping is like having an extra therapist with you, working on a tight area, while you are free to work on other needy muscles!
This class is a combination of lecture and demonstration and there is ample time allotted for hands on practice. The attendee will come away with a working knowledge of using soft silicone cups that can be immediately applied in their massage practice. Clients and therapists are loving this work!
