ACE Massage Cupping Level 1
ACE Massage Cupping Therapy™ is an incredible modality that can be added to any massage or healthcare practice. This 16 CEU course includes education in theory and application of ACE Massage Cupping™ therapy, along with demonstrations of techniques and treatments using manual vacuum tools. ACE Massage Cupping™ therapy greatly enhances the benefits of massage, decreases physical strain on the practitioner, and increases revenues through add-on services.
This ancient tool has been adapted for bodywork and is powerfully therapeutic for many conditions. ACE Massage Cupping™ therapy is effective in addressing conditions such as inflammation, tissue congestion, movement restrictions, scar tissue, and chronic pain. Great results have been observed when using ACE Massage Cupping therapy for surgical preparation and recovery. It has also proven itself to be effective in athletic performance enhancement and medical weight loss programs, including bariatric surgery.
This versatile technique mimics massage movements ranging from deep tissue and myofascial release to the light pumping movements of lymphatic drainage. Used regularly, ACE Massage Cupping™ therapy is a terrific approach to promoting wellness for our clients.
This 2-day workshop is fun and informative, with plenty of hands-on activity. Students will leave the class with a working knowledge on using the techniques in their practice.
Don’t miss this opportunity to add one of the most valuable and versatile healing modalities available today to your toolbox. Classes book fast!
