Cupping Canada Inc. teaches across Canada and the USA as well as provides training to multiple health disciplines in both countries, and our goal is to ensure that we are teaching and promoting to the highest possible standards in relation to cleaning and disinfection. This ensures that regardless of the geographic jurisdiction being taught in, or the type of health professional attending our courses, that we are leaving no room for error!
As more and more people discover the benefits of Cupping Therapy for themselves as well as their patients, a lot of questions come up as to when you can - and more importantly can NOT - treat with either Silicone or Vacuum Cups. Please see the following guidelines for when NOT to cup!
We see a lot of posts on social media from people asking why their cups won't stick to a specific area. Loss of suction is mainly related to the adhesiveness between the cup and skin. If the adhesiveness is good then the suction will usually hold for an extended period of time. But if the adhesiveness is poor, then the suction becomes weak and loosens in short time.
