Massage Cupping™ is effective in relieving chronic pain at old injury sites and also addresses conditions such as: Fibromyalgia, diabetes, pre- and post-op edema and inflammation, chronic edema, scar tissue and adhesions, and cellulite. This versatile technique mimics massage movements ranging from deep tissue and myofascial release to the light pumping movements of lymphatic drainage. Used regularly, Massage Cupping™ is a terrific approach to promoting wellness for our clients and our-selves.

The 3-day & 2-day workshop is fun and informative, with plenty of hands-on activity. Don't miss this opportunity to add Massage Cupping™, one of the most valuable and versatile healing modalities available today, to your toolbox".
