Evidence Informed Clinical Cupping - Closed Class for U of M AT Students March 18-19, 2023
$ 555.00 CAD
This class in Winnipeg at the U of M is by invitation only.
Join us for this 2-day, 16 hour hands-on training and learn how to provide quick, effective pain management and enhance the mobility of your clients with Cupping Therapy.
Interested in learning how to educate your clients on the ways in which a program of Cupping Therapy fits perfectly into their wellness activities? Let's delve into the history, theory, research and ethics in Cupping Therapy in order that you have a volume of knowledge not only about how best to provide this treatment, but also how to explain it and how to enhance overall client retention. You will learn how to use 12 different cupping sets, contraindications/indications of cupping, proper cleaning and infection control protocol, specific treatments for many issues seen in your practice, charting, cupping with movement, nerve glides, scar tissue work and debunking of many myths taught in the industry.
This Cupping course is unique in that we do not focus on any one 'type' of Cupping Therapy but rather focus on the research available and the types of treatments that can be provided using the various products in the marketplace. This approach provides you with the knowledge and skill on how to use a number of different types of cups to achieve the overall therapeutic outcome your clients are looking for.
Save your body and your hands and most importantly, discover how the versatility of Cupping Therapy can transform your practice into life changing bodywork.
