Cupping Therapy Question and Answer Series
Thank you for joining us for another installment of our Cupping Therapy Q&A Series. Here, we feature clinical questions submitted to us by ACE Massage Cupping Therapy practitioners. Our educators offer some brief insight on the topic so that you can expand your working knowledge on this revolutionary bodywork therapy and its benefits.
Is it alright to use cupping in conjunction with visceral massage or even C-section scar?
Thanks for your email and question. Many practitioners use cupping therapy techniques for scar work, and the release of C-section scars is integral to achieving healthy lymphatic flow to the upper inguinal nodes. The vacuum itself will affect the viscera beneath, and can be used with intention and knowledge of how to manipulate the organs.
The MediCupping Online Course is a great place to start, and fun to try the techniques on yourself and peers. I think a class is truly necessary to give you the experience to produce the results you are looking for, in the type of work you are planning to do. I think you will really enjoy both the Online Class and the in-person workshop.
