Prerequisites

Each State and Province has their own regulations and laws regarding licensing of healthcare practitioners. It is your responsibility to understand and work within your medical license scope of practice.

1) The first prerequisite to attend the Contemporary Cupping Methods training is the completed study of *Full Human Anatomy & Physiology (A&P). Partial or introductory classes are not acceptable (see below description of Full Study A&P).

(The ICTA does not teach A&P, as A&P is part of all core curriculum of formal medical training.

As continuing education providers, our objective is to extend the knowledge beyond the core competencies of any given field of healthcare training. We require that ALL CCM Student Practitioners are knowledgeable with all the systems, pathologies, structures, terminology, movement, contraindications and safety considerations covered in Human A&P.

If you do not know what A&P is or have not completed this medical fundamentals training, then you will need to take it upon yourself to complete this basic level competency to meet this part of the prerequisites for the ICTA programs.

* The following subjects are covered in the Full Study of Human Anatomy and Physiology

  • Medical Terminology
  • Pathologies
  • Systems:

  • Integumentary
  • Circulatory
  • Endocrine
  • Nervous
  • Digestive
  • Urinary
  • Reproductive
  • Musculoskeletal
  • Respiratory
  • Lymphatic

2) The other prerequisite to attend the CCM Program is that your medical training or professional experience includes hands on bodywork where you performed soft tissue manipulation, joint work and Kinesiology techniques.

This is a really important aspect of being prepared to do safe, effective Cupping Therapy. Having sufficient experience working on muscles & support structures, understanding movement, gait, posture, contraindications of soft tissue manipulation and the problems affecting the system after bodywork is mandatory.

If you have not worked with the human body soft tissue and related joints using your hands, then you are not prepared to do safe, effective Cupping Therapy, and you will not be approved to attend.
