Why should I take this class?
If you are a new practitioner or a seasoned veteran in the field you should have this modality in your tool box. Massage Cupping (MC) is exploding across the country and becoming a highly sought after rehabilitative therapy for athletes to the average American alike. As MC grows in popularity and the general consumer experiences its unique and effective lasting results the demand for certified practitioners will grow.
MC can revolutionize, diversify, and prolong your practice as a Massage Therapist. Due to burnout, injury, and saturated markets the average “shelf life” for a MT is about 3 years. MC is a great modality to prevent injury, burnout, and situate yourself in the market place by giving you a modality that is effective and unique. MC can increase your bottom line, it saves strain on the practitioners body and allow you to see more clients a day, at the same time providing an effective and lasting treatment. Depending on how your practice is structured, you can add MC to your ala carte menu in the same way you offer hot stones, spa applications, or other specialized treatments.
What to expect from this class?
Each massage cupping workshop is an accelerated learning environment with an emphasis on an experiencial and a practical approach to learning the art of massage cupping. We spend a majority of time in class focusing on the practical application of massage cupping and less time on theory and lecture. The demonstration segments are highly informative and designed to teach through action and experience. The ample practice time helps to ensure each student receives an authentic feel during the workshop how massage cupping can benefit both practitioner and client.
Jason’s teaching style is relaxed, open, and often filled with humor. We believe that learning happens when our students are comfortable and at ease, so we strive to keep the workshop engaging, interactive, and fun.
There are four demonstrations and four exchanges in each massage cupping workshop. Throughout the course you will have approximately five hours of hands-on application and five hours of receiving massage cupping from your class partner. The series of demonstrations is designed to illustrate how to apply each of the different styles of cups on the entire body in prone, supine, and side-laying position.
