Suction cup therapy is a traditional, time-honored treatment that remains favored by millions of people worldwide because it is safe, comfortable and remarkably effective for many health disorders. By creating suction and negative pressure while manipulating the soft tissue, massage cupping can release rigid soft tissue, loosen adhesions and lift connective tissue, bringing blood flow to skin and muscles.
This seminar will examine how applying negative pressure massage cupping to facial structures can help alleviate pain, decrease swelling, increase range of motion, enhance detoxification, and speed up the healing process. This class will outline the theory and actions of massage cupping to facial structures, the tools used to perform the technique and the basics of using the tools safely and effectively. Participants will leave the seminar armed with an additional useful technique that is non-invasive, painless and effective.
Cups and supplies provided for the class. Cupping supplies may be ordered at the class or on the website.
