Southeast Unit (CE) The Art of Massage Cupping Therapy

May 25, 2016, 9:00am - May 26, 2016, 6:00pm

Presenter: Annie Garic CE Hours: 16 Registration: 8:30am 5/25, Class: 9am to 6pm each day Cost: AMTA Members, $288; Non-Members, $400 A wonderful ancient tool has found its place in the contemporary world of health care. Massage cupping is a modern form of vacuum therapy, and the incredible results that this simple treatment produces have truly impressed those who experience its subtle power. Students can expect the unexpected! Each person responds to this modality based on their condition at the time. There is a high level of hands-on work. Keeping warm and adequate hydration assists any processes that may develop. Participants who have not received regular bodywork may experience remarkable changes. These experiences are necessary for the practitioner to understand the complex effects of this technique. Massage cupping therapy is incredibly versatile and the basic movements can easily be customized to accomplish a wide variety of techniques, from lymphatic drainage to deep tissue release. This complements many health modalities ranging from spa treatments and medical massage to chiropractic, physical and occupational therapies. What to bring: - sheets and face cradle covers - one small hand towel - one bath or large towel - unscented massage oil - box of tissue - robe (optional) Click on 'Tickets' above to register online.
