Advanced Cupping Techniques

If you’re looking at this course you already know how amazing Cupping is.

During this intensive 2 days your instructor will guide you through 24 protocols to effectively deal with dozens of issues common among your patients and clients.

We dive deeper into Biomagnetics, Dynamic Cupping, dealing with scar tissue, more layouts covering upper body, lower body – prone, supine – on & off the table.  We also introduce you to a unique method of Cupping – Rocking Cups.

You’ll walk away from this workshop, not only with a deeper understanding of how decompression changes the body structures, but with a richer intuitive skill-set to discover recovery processes that will broaden your practice substantially.

Format is 85% hands-on lab exchange. Equipment used – Baguanfa Cups, EarthSpa Bells and Bell Tools (most bring their Belletazze) and Haci. Practitioners bring their own equipment and oil for labs. Contact your instructor if you need equipment brought to the workshop.

Advanced Cupping Techniques

Advanced Cupping Techniques is 2 full days learning 24 new treatments and working with 4 different Cupping sets. The curriculum is designed for Cupping Therapists at the Intermediate level of Cupping competency and who have been consistently providing Cupping Therapy to patients for at least 4 months.

Health Professionals are using these powerfully effective ICTA treatments in modern clinical and holistic settings to provide treatment to a huge spectrum of patients.

During this intensive 16 hours of 85% hands-on lab exchange your instructor will guide you through 24 protocols to effectively deal with dozens of issues most common among your patients and clients. The amount of time each team of practitioners gets hands on, is reliant on the level of Cupping competency those practitioners have. The equipment used will be the Baguanfa Cups, Haci Silver Biomagnetic Cups, EarthSpa Bells and Bell Tools. Each practitioner brings their own equipment for lab work.

Another powerful aspect of this 2 day deeper dive presents the opportunity of interacting with other Cupping professionals to table and discuss their subjective/objective clinical observations using Cupping Therapy.

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