This workshop reviews the history of vacuum therapies, applications and contraindications, and all of the foundation movements and techniques. A demonstration will illustrate the immediate treatment applications, as well as the invaluable information that the body reveals through the lens of the cup. This presentation will explain the effects of VacuTherapies™ on the body and how these effects can result in dramatic changes in client conditions. As an adjunct therapy to chiropractic manipulation, medical protocols and surgical recovery, MediCupping™ therapy accelerates patient progress. This leads to happier clients and increased referrals from medical professionals!
One of the most amazing aspects of this technique is the “separation” that the vacuum produces in tissue layers. This enables water absorption and renewed blood flow to undernourished and dehydrated tissue as well as the elimination of old waste and congestion. The results are truly incredible.
Along with the substantial health benefits of clearing old debris, the use of suction is invaluable in releasing soft tissue, scars and restricted fascia. Sports professionals are benefiting from the ease of recovery from injury or surgery and an increase in athletic performance, and major league sports teams are utilizing the therapy.
This class will leave you asking … “Why didn’t someone show me this before?”
