Cupping for Professionals

These cupping massage courses were created specifically for professional 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.

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 Jennifer Aniston.

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 –  and keep you current in your field.

There are 2 classes in the series: 

Classes include:

  • History, safety, contraindications, and up-to-date cleaning and disnifection methods
  • Cupping for detoxification, immune system enhancement and tight muscles
  • Myofacial release with cupping

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.

Important note: Cupping is not a replacement for medical care. Those who are physically weak or frail may not be suited to cupping therapy. Those who are pregnant, undergoing chemotherapy, radiation, or treatment for any severe disease such as liver or kidney failure should not do cupping.

If you are unsure if this course is right for you, contact Bonnie before registering.

Please note: Cups are not included in the cost of the course, but information on how to choose cups and reputable suppliers will be available

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”
