Comments From Past Students:
The most impactful thing I learned as a result of attending this course is the different ways you can incorporate cupping into your massage, the convenience of cupping, the effectiveness and the results of cupping.
The cupping was great...of course. What I found most impactful was the focus on evidence informed practices - from the outcomes of cupping, to how clients can be interacted with to maximize the placebo effect etc.
Although I will be using cupping with clients, the most impressive thing I learned was how I can use it on myself for self care. I didn't go into the course thinking that it would be something I could practice on myself.
I really had no idea what cupping was before taking this course and now i feel that it will be an integral part of my treatments and my own self-care. My shoulder internal ROM was increased dramatically in a few minutes and that alone makes me extremely confident in applying cupping.
