Some knowledge of anatomy and experience treating people in a clinical environment is necessary to participate.

Cupping is the latest and greatest trend, which is interesting because it is actually an ancient technique that has been made popular by celebrities and athletes like Michael Phelps and Gwyneth Paltrow.

Professional practitioners need to be able to offer cupping therapy to better serve clients and keep up with demand. Having this skill will help you to build your practice and keep clients coming back for more!

Plus, it is easy on the practitioner, so it will help you to extend your career – not to mention that it can give you the CEU’s you need to keep current in your field.

There are 3 classes in the series:

What students are saying about the Professional Cupping Classes!

“I had the opportunity of attending Bonnie’s class “cupping for professionals” this past weekend. Fantastic class!
Bonnie is an incredible teacher she spends lots of time sharing information, giving you a step by step information booklet so all you have to do is listen her experience which she shares so freely
She brought in some wonderful volunteers so we could all see,touch and ask questions both to Bonnie and the volunteer .. then we were given plenty of time to give and receive a treatment…. perfect amount of time for information laughs and munchies here and there … I’ve attend many classes in my years as a practitioner and by far this was one of the best … thank you so much Bonnie”
Lisa Loder, Registered Massage Therapist

Please be aware that we will be practicing on each other in class. Cupping can trigger a mild detoxification, so be sure you have rest time built into your schedule after the class. You could feel tired and a bit achy the day after class as toxins are pulled from your system. This is a positive side effect! Rest, lots of fluids and salt water baths can help to ease this process.
