Course Details

This course is ideal for therapists wishing to understand more about how our body’s fascia system works and how to release the body’s myofascial tissue using vacuum cupping. It is intended for qualified massage and bodywork therapists who wish to extend their existing skills to include myofascial cupping.

Myofascial cupping is a modified version of the ancient Eastern style cupping. It differs by specifically targeting the musculoskeletal system rather than the meridian systems used by traditional Chinese practitioners. The vacuum lifts the soft tissue perpendicular to the skin, providing a tensile force to the underlying soft tissue system. Incorporating myofascial cupping into your regular massage routines, or using it as a modality all on its own, myofascial cupping skills will enhance your treatments, and your results.
