ABOUT THE COURSE
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. Interested in learning how to educate your clients on the ways in which a program of Cupping Therapy fits perfectly into their wellness activities? Let’s delve into the history, theory, research and ethics in Cupping Therapy in order that you have a volume of knowledge not only about how best to provide this treatment, but also how to explain it, how to recognize contraindications, and how to enhance overall client retention.
This Cupping course is unique in that we do not focus on any one ‘type’ of Cupping Therapy but rather focus on the research available and the types of treatments that can be provided using the various products in the marketplace. We provide you with information on how to treat common client complaints by using Cupping Therapy which will benefit your client’s treatment plan.
Save your body and your hands and most importantly, discover how the versatility of Cupping Therapy can transform your practice into life changing bodywork.
