Product Description

Morning:  Selfcare with Massage Cupping
Massage Cupping (MC) is a highly effective self care tool as well an integral part of preventing the two most common challenges LMT's face; burnout and injury. Whether you use Massage Cupping primarily for selfcare or integrate it into your practice massage cupping equipment and education is an affordable investment in the quality of your life.

In this class, students will learn a brief history of Cupping and Suction Therapy, contraindication & cautions, what the marks are, how to work on LMT's problem areas, intro to current cupping trends & equipment, how and where to apply cups pertaining to your own selfcare, and why you might want to introduce massage cupping to your practice and clients. You will practice the cups on yourself throughout this class.

This class satisfies 4 hours of "direct supervised massage skills training".

What to Bring: wear loose clothing, preferably short sleeves and shorts. Please leave everything not needed for class in your vehicle or at home.

Afternoon:  Cupping & Gua Sha for Face, Neck and Chest Healing & Beautification

Facial Cupping, combined with Gua Sha, is a powerful ancient healing and beautification technique. For clients focused on the therapeutic healing benefits, it addresses the most common source of pain (tension and stress) in the upper chest, neck, jaw, face, and head/scalp regions; giving massage therapists (and acupuncturists, chiropractors, physical therapists, aestheticians, etc.) the ability to help more clients live pain free.

You will learn how to successfully incorporate Facial Cupping and Gua Sha therapy into your massage or aesthetics practice in a way that not only brings in more clients, allowing you to provide lasting benefits to your clients and maybe even increase your hourly rate with this unique and special modality. We will cover the logistics of pricing and the integration of this modality into your practice in class.

The Facial Cupping & Gua Sha course will teach you how to do Facial Cupping & Facial Gua Sha; you will also receive a handout for your clients for home care designed to show them how to incorporate Facial Cupping & Gua Sha into their day-to-day practice, as well as an opportunity to generate sales on equipment and product for your clients at home care.

While Facial Cupping & Gua Sha also provide relief for issues such as TMJ and chronic headaches, it is most popular for its beauty applications, however the therapeutic benefits extend far beyond a glowing radiant complexion. It is amazing for our skin's vitality and has been used in Asia for thousands of years as a go-to anti-aging secret.

What to Bring: Bring a set of sheets, pillow or bolster, wear loose-fitting clothing. Use a large tote bag or suitcase to contain your "what to bring items". Please leave everything not needed for class in your vehicle or at home.
