In-Depth Cupping Workshop
led by Jim Madras, LMT
Thursday, September 28 – Sunday, October 1, 2017
This workshop is open to all. No experience necessary.
If you are not a professional bodyworker, you will be surprised at how easy it is to treat your partner, friends, and family with this modality. If you are a professional bodyworker, you can immediately start incorporating this work into your existing practice.
Cupping is an age old bodywork technique where glass, plastic, bamboo, or silicone cups are attached to the skin by negative pressure. Once attached, a cup can be left in place to do its work, or repeatedly attached and removed. Cups can be moved along the surface of the skin – gently lifting the tissue as it travels; or the body can be moved – actively or passively – underneath the cup.
The vacuum is generally used to pull out external influences that have invaded the body (heat, cold, dampness, wind) and are causing pain or illness. Cups are also used to support tired, overused or injured tissue – or enticing blood and movement to weakened or deficient areas.
Strategic use of cupping’s strengths have been used for centuries for treating pulmonary issues, joint pain, muscle tension, external injuries…and even the common cold.
Workshop material will include:
- safety for the client and practitioner
- effects of cupping treatments
- flash cupping and stationary cupping
- traditional fire cups and modern silicone and squeeze bulb cups
- balms and liniments for post treatment care
- incorporating cupping into your practice
