ACE VacuTherapies Level 2
This three-day workshop will build on the foundation forged by the Level 1 workshops that we have been offering nationally since 2001. While Level 1 ACE Massage Cupping™ and MediCupping™ workshops focus on learning the techniques, movements, applications, and safety, Level 2 will take this knowledge and build upon it to truly position the practitioner “within the treatment cup” along with integrating a more intense scrutiny of hydration issues in the “body of water”.
- Any in-person level 1 ACE workshop
The Level 2 workshop is a honing of assessment skills using specific evaluation criteria, along with ACE VacuTherapies™ techniques and concepts to create individual protocols for clients with acute and chronic conditions. Special attention is dedicated to the review of bio-magnetic theory and applications, along with a review of the lymphatic system to address the intensive tissue dredging that characterizes vacuum therapy.
Participants may choose to present a case synopsis or client study devoted to a particular health imbalance or condition.
Case synopsis suggestions:
- SOAP notes
- Treatment diagrams
- Client comments and testimonials
- Photographic documentation
- Practitioner observation
- Client feedback notes
This workshop takes vacuum therapy to the next level and is fundamental for creating the “thinking therapist” that has the observational skills to effectively address almost any condition or application.
Easily help clients of all ages with the power of ACE VacuTherapies. Build your practice quickly with medical referrals based on dramatic results!
