For Acupuncturists & Massage Therapists


Cupping [myofascial decompression] and Gua Sha [instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization] are two integral parts of Chinese medicine that are easily accessible to anyone. Basic theory of injury and chronic pain will be covered as well as when it is appropriate and contraindicated to perform these therapies. Explanation of the basic tools and methods of each therapy will also be taught. This course will be an in depth hands on course allowing practitioners to walk away with the ability to integrate these therapies into their practice right away. Both techniques are vital for acupuncturists to fully treat the body and are wonderful ways for massage therapists to save their hands from excessive overuse. Both therapies increase circulation dramatically and are wonderful was of treating stagnation and chronic pain as well as muscle tightness and spasm, trigger points, and inflammation. These techniques are commonly practiced by lay people in China as they are handed down from parent to child as effective ways to treat oneself and ones family. This course is open to anyone but is geared towards acupuncturists and massage therapists.
