3-Day Fundamentals and 1-Day Lymph Drainage Cupping Course

September 15-17, 2023, Markham


“I would and have already recommend this course to others! I see it as a great tool to add to my repertoire as a therapist. Something that was different about this course from others I think was the lymphatic drainage component to the course, as well as the infra-red imaging. It was great to see the vasodilation effect that cups have on the body.” – Alaina Berger, RMT.

“It was a great experience to review and re-learn cupping techniques, as well as different methods and ways to use the cups, especially the silicon cups. I also appreciated the precautions and troubleshooting methods related to dealing with three different types of cups. Initially, I had only intended to take the material from the last day, which focused on lymph drainage techniques combined with cupping. However, I’m glad I signed up for the entire three-day course instead. As a massage therapist practicing in Toronto, I found the course incredibly valuable.”

“I have already started benefiting monetarily from this cupping technique that I learned in the course. By introducing it to my practice right after taking the course, my patients are absolutely mesmerized by the tremendous effects. They report feeling much more ‘organized’ both physically and even emotionally after each session. One standout benefit is that the cupping techniques from the course are very effective for knot removal in any muscles in the body. This has been a game-changer in my practice, and my patients have noticed significant improvements in their muscle tension and overall well-being.”

“Our instructor, Shannon, is a highly skilled individual with cheerful, driven, and motivated characteristics. Her accommodating and accepting demeanor was truly inspiring in some ways, and it made me reflect on my own attitude towards people when they challenge my own thesis or general ideas.”

“The other staff members were also very friendly and attentive, always ready to meet any student’s needs, both in class and outside the class via Zoom. I wholeheartedly recommend this cupping course from OPIS to anyone in the healthcare field. I’m looking forward to and can’t wait to take the elective courses next year already!”
