Class Description:
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.

Materials Needed;  Please bring your table, linens, a hand towel, and lubricant.  Vacu-cups will be provided for your use.

About the Instructor

Garrett Brown

I ​have ​been ​interested ​in ​the ​power ​of ​touch ​most ​of ​my ​life ​but ​I ​worked ​in ​the ​trade ​industry ​as ​a ​welder, ​machinist, ​and ​maintenance ​mechanic. ​ ​In ​2012 ​I ​made ​a ​180 ​career ​change ​and ​found ​massage ​therapy ​which ​has ​become ​an ​absolute ​passion. ​ ​After ​being ​licensed ​in ​Jan ​2014 ​opened ​my ​private ​practice ​specializing ​in ​post-surgery, ​chronic ​pain, ​scar, ​burn, ​breast ​cancer, ​and ​any ​medical ​massage ​I ​could ​be ​trained ​in.

I ​met ​Anita ​Shannon ​at ​a ​trade ​show ​and ​began ​immediately ​taking ​continuing ​education ​courses ​with ​ACE. ​ ​After ​going ​through ​Levels ​1&2, ​breast ​health ​intensive ​with ​Anita, ​and ​Lymph/cupping ​with ​Beth-Ellen ​and ​following ​Anita ​to ​classes ​and ​trade ​shows, ​Anita ​gave ​me ​the ​opportunity ​to ​teach. ​ ​I ​look ​forward ​to ​inspiring ​and ​helping ​therapist ​grow ​in ​cupping ​therapies
