Join Paul Kohlmeier for this hands-on training and learn how to provide quick and effective pain management for the enhanced mobility of your clients with Cupping Therapy. This Advanced course is for those who have already taken a Cupping course and would like to elevate their practice with Cupping with Movement!  

Our Advanced course explores trigger point work, myofascial release, functional mobility, and movement exercises: 

  • Trigger point work, used before cupping, can allow you to release muscular tissue and thereby enhance the performance of stationary or dynamic cups. 
  • Myofascial release works slow and steady, applying a vacuum force on the tissue that is steady and reliable. It’s effects on the tissue and neurological system will be explored. 
  • Functional movement of the body may be indicated in your cupping session, and we will demonstrate ways of increasing range of motion in your clients by testing for range of movement both before and after cupping is utilized. 

You will need a set of cups.  If you do not have cups you will be able to purchase cups onsite prior to the start of workshop.
