This one day CPD Diploma for qualified massage therapists brings the ancient art of cupping to the twenty first century salon!
By applying a series of warm, suction glass jars onto the full body, as a therapeutic massage intervention, the art of cupping is designed to treat a wide range of physical problems, ranging from pain and muscle spasms right through to cellulite and even common colds and flu.
During this powerful therapeutic treatment, oil is applied to the body with traditional massage strokes to loosen up the tissues. Following on form this, the cups are then applied over a layer of massage oil and onto the parts of the body selected for treatment. Both full body and partial body treatments are possible.
The suction and warmth created during this process has a dramatic effect on the immune system as it works to move the blood and lymph and, in so doing, stimulates both the muscles and spinal nerves.
This course teaches therapists to apply the cups to the back, shoulders, legs, joints and stomach for treatment of a range of conditions.
As a result of undertaking this training course, therapists will be able to offer cupping therapy to a variety of clients for medical treatments, relaxation therapy and beauty treatments.
The treatment is especially effective as an anti cellulite treatment and can be marketed specifically for this, particularly to offer courses of pre holiday preparation and “bikini body ready” menus.
This therapy also offers a fantastic potential to sports therapists working with athletes who all too frequent present with sports injuries. This course is particularly useful to therapists wishing to reduce the wear and tear on their own bodies whilst still providing strong massage stimulation therapy.
