Susan Cupping on Back

About the Class:

Back by popular demand!  Please join us for the Ancient Art of Cupping clearly presented by seasoned practitioner Susan Johnson, L.Ac. This one-day course will explore clinical applications of cupping and the differentiation of cupping styles and suction techniques.

Additional material that will be covered:

  • Discussion on shades of color on the skin and their meaning
  • Different types of cupping devices
  • How to use cupping as a diagnostic tool
  • How and why toxins build up in the muscles and/or joints
  • Gwa sha; its clinical significance and application
  • Important discussion of the patient and doctor interface, safety concerns, and post-cupping expectations
  • A bamboo cupping demonstration video will be shown

Cupping can yield immediate results and Susan emphasizes the patterns she uses for various diagnosis due to their clinical usefulness through videos and live demonstration. Clear diagrams of specific cupping patterns will be provided. Handouts will be provided; no books are required.

In the late afternoon, all attendees will watch a short, live demonstration when Susan will demonstrate one  important cupping pattern.

In-person attendees will then break into a clinical setting and Susan will circulate as attendees practice the suggested cupping patterns on each other. (Note: webinar attendees may continue to watch the attendees practice broadcast as bonus footage to learn via verbal feedback given to the in-person practitioners. However, during this bonus broadcast, a moderator will not be available for questions. The cupping practice bonus footage does not include CEUs for webinar attendees.)

In-person attendees should bring their own cupping kits for use during the practice session. Loose, comfortable clothing is recommended. (No fire cupping will be permitted during this class. Suction style kits only.)
