In this comprehensive workshop, instructor Ryan Sullivan will demonstrate the potency of modern cupping for health. Students will be given the opportunity to explore a variety of cupping tools and practice protocols that address many ailments from head to toe, front and back. Using vacuum, rather than pressure, the therapy known widely as cupping can be applied gently or robustly. Its practice can be traced from the temples of ancient civilizations and all corners of the world to the 2016 Olympics. Cupping protocols in this workshop will address muscles and tendons, treat scars, and enhance circulation, vitality and flexibility. Hands-on learning will focus on modern cupping methods using a variety of silicone, glass, plastic, and wooden tools. The use of Gua Sha and linaments will also be introduced as complementary therapies that enhance the effectiveness of cupping. Handouts will be provided. Cupping sets and tools will be available for purchase. Each participant will receive a certificate upon completion of the course and massage therapists will earn 6 CE's. Students will leave with the confidence and knowledge to immediately begin practicing on themselves and others.
