Muscle Fascia Cupping Class (2 Days)
Learn to use "moving cups" with vacuum gun to treat fascia and stretch tissue. Using negative pressure the moving cups draw fascia and tissue into the cups to stretch fascia, strip fascia and get it to restructure itself in a more ideal pattern and stretch muscle tissue following fascia lines/planes. Silicone cups not recommended! Add to massage or use as a treatment, extremely effective to treat long standing patterns in the body that massage often doesn't treat. With minimal impact on your hands, it is easy on the therapist and less pain for the client. This is different from Chinese cupping, which uses heat & leaves red marks.
The instructor is certified in Myofascial Cupping and Advanced Cupping as well as with the Trigger Point Institute (Vancouver, BC) and SAVE Your HANDS! instructor training which includes Cupping techniques. Joni teaches this therapy and adds Cryotherapy to minimize inflammation and pain/redness post treatment and accelerate healing. Having done vacuum cupping since 2011 with athletes (Iron Man, CFL, triathletes, marathon runners, soccer players) cupping has become a standard addition to massage therapy.
