Cupping is a very safe and effective treatment modality that improves blood circulation, and lymphatic flow in the body while address restrictions and adhesions. It is a great tool to help with pain relief and has no demonstratable negative effects on the body when practiced by a properly informed practitioner.
Clients love the therapeutic effect of negative pressure massage. The sensation of suction is a little strange the first time, but the incredible feeling of the tension melting away when receiving cupping is hard to deny.
Watch your practice grow, as your clients line up to receive cupping treatments. Not only that, but cupping is very easy on your body. At the end of the day you will find you have more energy to see clients, and to enjoy what you love most in life.

In this three-day craniosacral therapy class, we deepen our awareness of the innate ability of the body to heal itself. We explore the notion that the body has an inner voice and can express itself-and that the awareness of this expression can be used as a therapeutic tool. The student will learn how to palpate fluctuations in the craniosacral rhythm that reflect the body's self-correcting mechanisms.
New skills offered will include direct communication with the inner wisdom through dialogue, listening and palpation of changes in the craniosacral rhythm and the tissues. Techniques to facilitate mobility of the tissues of the "Avenue of Expression" (as described by John Upledger) will be taught to assist the communication process.
Recognizing and honoring the patient's biological process and the ability of the body to express itself will be central themes of this class.
