Description

This certificate is perfect for anyone who wants to offer cupping therapy as a stand-alone treatment or as part of a package. You will learn the fundamental skills to offer a professional and effective treatment. This course is suitable for existing therapists who already have a sound knowledge on anatomy and physiology (A&P), as well as experience as a masseuse/masseur.

Cupping is one of the oldest methods of traditional Chinese medicine. It is a form of deep tissue massage that involves placing heated glass cups onto specific areas of the body.

The cup is heated by burning a cotton ball soaked in alcohol, or another flammable substance, placed inside the cup to remove all the oxygen. The cup is then turned upside down and placed on specific areas of the body. A vacuum is created which anchors the cup to the skin and pulls the skin and superficial muscle layer upwards as the air inside the cup cools.


Practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine believe that the ‘chi’ becomes imbalanced when a person is stressed, ill or injured. It is thought that cupping opens up the pores, stimulates the flow of blood and draws out blockages in a person’s chi. This allows energy to flow freely, encourages toxins to be drawn from the body, promotes healing and leaves the client feeling relaxed and revitalised.



Cupping can be used alone to treat a variety of conditions or can be used in conjunction with other complementary therapies. It is particularly helpful for chronic back pain, painful and swollen joints, respiratory problems, colds, headaches, migraines, insomnia, sleep disorders, cellulite, stress and depression.
