VacuTherapies ™ are an incredible modality that can be added into any massage or health care practice. This 22 CE course includes education in theory and application of ACE Massage Cupping™ therapy, along with demonstration of both basic and advanced techniques and treatments using manual vacuum tools. ACE Massage Cupping™ greatly enhances the benefits of massage, decreases strain on the practitioner, and increases revenues through “add-on” services.
This ancient tool has been adapted for bodywork and is powerfully therapeutic for many conditions. ACE Massage Cupping™ is effective in addressing conditions such as: inflammation, tissue congestion, movement restrictions, scar tissue, chronic pain, and many pre and post-surgical conditions. It is also proven itself to be effective in athletic performance enhancement and medical weight loss programs, including bariatric surgery.
This versatile technique mimics massage movements ranging from deep tissue and myofascial release to the light pumping movements of lymphatic drainage. Used regularly, ACE Massage Cupping™ therapy is a terrific approach to promoting wellness for our clients.
