Course Description

This 3-Day MCT© Fundamentals Combination Course offers further education into the world of therapeutic cupping including Fundamentals and Torso, Upper and Lower Extremities, and Lymphatic Drainage. 1-Day Lymphatic Drainage Course is also available.

An incredible therapy that can be added into any massage and healing modality. Fundamentals of MCT© and Therapeutic Cupping for Lymph Drainage, also known as MCT© Combination Course includes education in history, theory and application of Modern Cupping Therapy©, along with demonstration of specific techniques. Modern Cupping Therapy© greatly enhances the benefits of massage, decreases strain on the practitioner, and increases revenues through “add-on” services.

This technique has been created for bodywork and is powerfully therapeutic for many conditions. Modern Cupping Therapy© is effective in relieving chronic pain at old injury sites and can address 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, Modern Cupping Therapy© bodywork is a terrific approach to promoting wellness for our clients and ourselves.

This three-day workshop is fun and informative, with plenty of hands-on activity. Education will include safety and contra-indications, conditions that benefit from the Modern Cupping Therapy© techniques, integration into existing modalities, and applications for specific conditions. Don’t miss the opportunity to add to your “toolbox” one of the most valuable and versatile healing modalities available today.

We only recommend considering the 1-day Lymph Drainage if you are already very comfortable using cups as a modality. If you have not had much experience, please strongly consider the full 3-day course. Advanced weekend course coming this Fall 2024. Fundamentals weekend is a pre-requisite.

14PC Cupping Set, 4PC Silicon Cups & 4 Mini Pitcher Facial Cups included with 3-Day registration!
(Not included with 1-Day registration)

*Massage table is required by students.
