Course Description

Welcome to the Stretching with Cupping course, designed to elevate your practice and enhance client outcomes by integrating cupping therapy with various stretching modalities. Stretching with Cupping builds upon the foundation laid in our Intro or Level 1 ACE Massage Cupping and MediCupping courses. By combining cupping with isometric, isotonic, active, passive, dynamic, and pin-hold stretch techniques, you’ll unlock the potential for more effective therapeutic sessions with reduced physical stress. Throughout the course, you’ll have the opportunity to utilize cupping therapy techniques learned previously while exploring new methods to tailor treatments to individual client needs. Through a video series featuring a blend of detailed demonstrations, you’ll gain a comprehensive understanding of each technique, empowering you to seamlessly integrate Stretching with Cupping into your practice and educate your clients for optimal results.


Stretching with Cupping is an intermediate-level course intended to be taken after Level 1. As such, this course does not offer any instruction on the basics of ACE VacuTherapies. Students are expected to take an Intro or Level 1 equivalent cupping therapy course prior to enrolling in Stretching with Cupping.

Qualifying workshops include:

While we do not require any specific cups for this course, students are expected to train along with the course using their cups. The equipment featured in the video includes silicone manual cups and a variety of polycarbonate and glass cups. Techniques are demonstrated using an ACE MediCupping machine for suction, but these techniques may also be performed using manual cups if desired.

To best train along with the videos, it is recommended that students own a set of silicone cups as well as a general purpose cupping therapy set that includes glass or polycarbonate cups. If you need equipment, we’ve provided some recommendations below.
