This course is intended for students who have already taken a foundational Cupping course or who have performed cupping and understand the basic mechanics, benefits and contraindications of the modality. In this more advanced course, the objective is to show how cupping can be an effective method for releasing trigger points in the body. Trigger points are found in muscles that are overworked or have experienced trauma. Students will review what a trigger point is and how traditional techniques are typically performed. Then they will learn the advantages that cupping offers as a modality for releasing trigger points. Students will practice these techniques on both upper and lower body trigger points. Aftercare will also be discussed.
Upon completion of this course, the participant will be able to:
- Explain the differences between cupping versus traditional methods for treating trigger points
- Perform cupping on upper and lower body trigger points.
- Explain how it feels to be cupped using this method.
- Identify contraindications for performing this modality.
- Describe recommended care after being cupped to release trigger points.
