MediCupping™ & Level 2 Intensive

This workshop is most often held at international locations to present a complete package of information from Levels 1 and 2.

MediCupping™ therapy replaces the manual vacuum equipment with an amazing vacuum therapy machine. MediCupping utilizes the functional improvements that the vacuum therapy machine offers to enhance the scope and effectiveness of traditional and manual cupping techniques. The versatile movements quickly and comfortably accomplish goals such as pain management, athletic performance enhancement, body contouring, detoxification, and scar reduction. This special four-day intensive workshop combines the theory and foundation of MediCupping™ therapy with client assessment and protocol development theory from ACE VacuTherapies™ Level 2.

This certification workshop reviews the history of vacuum therapies, applications and contraindications, and all of the foundation movements. Client intake, assessment, and charting are addressed, and the practitioner comes to view the client through the cup, learning to discern information that the body reveals as it is being treated. The second day focuses on athletic performance, pathologies, and deep tissue issues, as well as the use of magnets to accelerate results.

A large focus for day three of the workshop is developing client evaluation skills using ACE VacuTherapies™ tools and techniques to see unusual aspects of client health. Students will also learn additional skills to assess and develop a treatment protocol based on evaluation criteria results from interviewing and intake forms as well as observation during treatment sessions. Day four focuses on the lymphatic system and conditions resulting in edema, neuropathies, and “solid bloat”.

This is a great workshop for those who want it all at once, and provides a solid foundation for effective evaluation and treatment using ACE VacuTherapies™ theory, tools, and techniques.
