Cupping for Professionals

These cupping massage courses were created for practitioners such as Registered Massage Therapists, Acupuncturists, Physiotherapists, Registered Nurses, Naturopathic Doctors, Personal Support Workers, Personal Trainers and other health care professionals and massage and body workers.

Cupping can be a deep tissue treatment or a more gentle treatment depending on the needs of the client. Cupping should never be painful, and these classes will teach you how to give a deep therapeutic treatment without causing the client undue discomfort.

Silicone cups will be used as they are easier to use, more comfortable to the client, more versatile and easiest to keep clean and sanitary. Dynamic movements, including massage techniques with the cups will be learned.

Cleaning, disinfecting and care of cups will be discussed, as well as how to search for and order supplies and materials.

A basic set of cups is inculded with the level 1 and 2 classes.

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

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 –  and keep you current in your field.

  • History, safety, contraindications, and up-to-date cleaning and disnifection methods

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
