Running every month, our popular one day Cupping Course aims to provide practitioners with an extra tool that is easily incorporated into treatment plans as a standalone technique or alongside other therapies.  The areas of focus will include the practical application and diagnostic principles for fire cupping, suction cupping, flash cupping and slide (massage) cupping. Specific attention will be placed on cupping for injury rehabilitation and prevention, as well as cupping to boost the immune system.

This CPD is mainly practical, with most emphasis placed on good technique and understanding, plus we keep our teaching groups small to ensure high standards throughout. On completion you will receive a full certificate allowing you to practice on patients with full insurance. We will also provide you with suction and glass cupping sets and accessories to start you on your cupping journey.

Our Cupping CPD is extremely popular throughout the UK, and early booking is recommended.

Cupping is an ancient Chinese Medicine treatment that involves a vacuumed cup being placed on to the body helping to promote the flow of circulation by mobilising blood and body fluids and dispersing stagnation. Cupping can treat musculoskeletal complaints, including injury prevention and rehabilitation, as well as non-muscular skeletal complaints such as respiratory conditions and irregular menstruation.  Although cupping therapy drew worldwide attention during the 2016 Rio Olympics, Cupping has in fact been around for thousands of years, and has been used heavily in both Eastern and Western cultures.
