Cupping is a treatment using silicone cups to suction and lift the skin and fascial layers.

What do you learn during the flossing & cupping course?

The Flossing and Cupping Therapy course delves into techniques for efficient moisture relocation post-trauma, leading to improved joint mobility, reduced muscle tension, and faster recovery. Participants learn about pain reduction, lymphatic drainage, and enhancing tissue perfusion, promoting a resilient and balanced fascial network. Cupping Therapy further offers relaxation, healing, and collagen stimulation for increased skin elasticity. The course addresses blockages, facilitates waste disposal, and explores the rejuvenating effects of these therapies, offering a comprehensive understanding and practical application for holistic well-being.
