MediCupping Level 1
22 CEUs (NCBTMB)
MediCupping™ provides a wonderful bridge to the medical community, with special applications for surgical preparation and recovery, chiropractic and orthopedic work, conditions associated with Diabetes, Parkinson’s, Fibromylagia, and much more. The results are fast and comfortable for the client and practitioner, and noticeably impressive to medical professionals.
As an adjunct therapy for massage, physical therapy and chiropractic work, easy resolution of soft tissue issues enhances procedures and adjustments to accelerate client progress. Preoperative and postoperative conditions such as scarring and restriction quickly respond to this gentle, yet effective, therapy. Athletic performance and injury recovery is also accelerated without discomfort.
This MediCupping™ Level 1 workshop reviews the history of vacuum therapies, applications and contraindications, and all of the foundation movements. Client intake, assessment and charting are addressed, and the practitioner comes to view the client through the cup, learning to discern information that the body reveals as it is being treated. The second day of the workshop focuses on athletic performance, pathologies, and deep tissue issues, as well as the use of magnets to accelerate results. The final day is dedicated to the lymphatic system and “Solid Bloat”, including specialized work with obesity and client weight loss programs as well as diabetes and edema.
Students will work with and become skilled at using the MC-600 VacuTherapy machine and/or MM-600 VacuTherapy machine, and will experience intensive hands-on exposure to the techniques that are presented.
MediCupping™ produces immediate effects on many conditions, resulting in client enthusiasm and commitment to treatment protocols.
