What is the difference between ACE Massage Cupping and MediCupping?
Both styles of cupping therapy that we teach are appropriate for beginners. There’s no right or wrong way to start your journey into cupping therapy. In addition, many concepts and techniques are shared between both styles. This versatility allows practitioners to use both the manual cups and the VacuTherapy machine in their practice with great ease.
ACE Massage Cupping
ACE Massage Cupping therapy is a modern style of cupping therapy that takes inspiration from ancient techniques. Practitioners utilize traditional manual cups to perform the techniques. ACE Massage Cupping is suitable for beginners, but is also utilized by advanced practitioners with great success. Due to the relatively inexpensive manual cupping equipment used, ACE Massage Cupping is a great starting point.
MediCupping therapy is a revolutionary style of cupping therapy that replaces the manual suction in traditional cups with a VacuTherapy machine. This machine allows the practitioner to have more control over the level of suction in the cups. This added level of control allows for new types of treatments and gives the practitioner a way to track treatment progress more accurately.
