MediCupping™ uses a machine to create the suction and pumping movements that are normally done with manual vacuum pistols, to create a soothing, consistent and effective treatment without strain on the therapist or client. A brief experience will illustrate the immediate treatment applications, as well as the invaluable information that the body reveals through the lens of the cup. This presentation will explain the effects of VacuTherapies™ on the body and how these effects can result in dramatic changes in client conditions. As an adjunct therapy to chiropractic manipulations, medical protocols and surgical recovery, MediCupping™ therapy accelerates patient progress … leading to happy clients and increased referrals from medical professionals!
Students will learn the fundamentals and techniques necessary to become a certified MediCupping practitioner. This course includes a few brief lessons on the applications and history of cupping, followed by a full-length instructional video series hosted by Anita J. Shannon.
