Where: Center for Natural Wellness, School of Massage Therapy
3 Cerone Commercial Dr. Albany, NY 12205
Presenter: William Burton
Prerequisite: ACE Cupping, Level I
This three-day workshop will build on the foundation forged by the Level I workshop. While Level I focuses on learning the techniques, movements, applications and safety, Level II will take this knowledge and build upon it to position the practitioner “within the treatment cup.” As is the tradition in these workshops, students will experience intensive hands-on exposure to the techniques that are presented.
The Level II workshop is a fusion of approaches, using the Massage Cupping™ bodywork techniques and concepts to create individual protocols for clients with specific conditions. Special attention will be dedicated to the lymphatic system due to the intensive tissue dredging that characterizes the Massage Cupping™ bodywork techniques.
Materials needed; Table, linens, hand towel and lubricant. Vacu-cups will be available for your use.
