MediCupping Level 1 & ACE VacuTherapies Level 2 Intensive
Learn from ACE educator Anita J. Shannon at this in-person workshop that introduces cupping therapy techniques using an electronic vacuum therapy machine. This workshop is suitable for beginners and contains both level 1 and level 2 over four days.
28 CEUs (NCBTMB)
This workshop will introduce and build on the foundation forged by the Level 1 workshops that we have been offering nationally since 2001. While Level 1 focuses on learning the techniques, movements, applications and safety, Level II will take this knowledge and build upon it to position the practitioner “within the treatment cup.” As is the tradition in our workshops, students will experience intensive hands-on exposure to the techniques that are presented.
Our Level 2 workshops are a fusion of approaches using ACE Massage Cupping™ bodywork techniques and concepts to create individual protocols for clients with specific conditions. Special attention will be dedicated to the lymphatic system due to the intensive tissue dredging that characterizes the Massage Cupping™ bodywork technique.
Participants will present a case synopsis of either a single or group client study devoted to a particular health imbalance or condition.
