This workshop is designed for Cupping Therapists at the Intermediate Level of Cupping competency and who have been actively providing Cupping Therapy in their practice for at least 6 months. This curriculum builds upon the foundation of the Negative Pressure Massage and the Contemporary Cupping Methods Programs.

We understand that other Cupping Therapy training courses exist that possibly meet the prerequsites for this workshop - please email Aaron with the outline of the training and a copy of your Continuing Ed Cupping certificate of the program you completed. Here's a link to the prerequisites for taking this training.

During this intensive 2 days you will spend during the Advanced Cupping Techniques Program your instructor will guide you through 24 protocols to effectively deal with dozens of issues most common among your patients and clients.

You'll walk away from this workshop, not only with a deeper understanding of how to provide relief, recovery and healing in these problems, but also richer intuitive skills to translate the theory and application to numerous other issues that will broaden your practice in ways that will amaze you and you'll feel prepared to do it.

This workshop is approximately 85% hands-on lab exchange format. The amount of time each team of practitioners gets hands on, is reliant on the level of Cupping competency those practioners have. The equipment used will be the Baguanfa Cups, Haciwuxing, EarthSpa Bells and Bell Tools. Each practitioner brings their own equipment for labwork.

You will cover the following Sports, Orthopedic, Stubborn Problems - upper body, lower body, prone and supine.

Dynamic Cupping Stationary Cupping Biomagnetic Cupping
Massage Cupping Facial Cupping Intermittant Cupping

Health Professionals are using this powerfully effective therapy in modern clinical and holistic settings to provide treatment to a huge spectrum of people.

The subjective findings derived from numerous Hospital, Clinics, Institutions, Spas and Private Practices has validated Cupping Therapy as being superior in the majority of applications compared to what health practitioners were previously using to treat their clientele. Objectively, patients are reporting the results as being "miraculous", with such overwhelming enthusiasm as to drive even the Allopathic Medical Industry to incorporate Cupping Therapy as a quantitatively effective and respected method of healing.

Cupping is an incredible modality that, among many other benefits, increases circulation, relaxes soft tissue and support, draws stagnation, pathogenic factors and toxins out of the body and releases a myriad of pain causing factors. Myofascia Release, Lymphatic Drainage and Detoxification are only 3 of the numerous therapeutic results from Cupping.

Another extremely valuable aspect in using Cups to heal, is the reduced wear and tear to the practitioner. The physical repetitive activity is tough on the Healthcare Provider - tools used in Cupping greatly increase the practitioners’ comfort and physical longevity - thus extending the longevity of the therapists' career exponentially. This fact alone merits attention from every Medical Professional.

Location Information

The ICTA has a strict privacy policy for our students. Only those regisrtered for our workshop is allowed to know the location of their training. NO ACCEPTIONS WILL BE MADE.

Because our workshops are practitioner-exchange based and require a massage table and equipment / supply table for every 2 - 3 students, we need to contract for an appropriately sized space. Cramped rooms are not good for our training protocol.

The instructor will decide the location of the training venue about 3 - 4 weeks in advance of the workshop and it is based on how many are on their roster. The Educator will email those on their rosters with the logistical details.  

Locations are based on the Greater Metropolitan Region.
In other words, as with all seminars provided by professional accredited education providers, although the location listed may be the most recognizable city, the actual location may not in the city proper - but somewhere in that citys' Metropolitan Region. This allows for more flexibility and keeps prices lower, often makes for easier logistical access and usually complimenetary parking and other nice benefits to the students attending and staying at the hotels.

Additionally our instructors are usually coming in from out of town, so they are equally sensitive to placing the workshop in a location that is as convenient as possible.
