Learn More About MediCupping Therapy

After the 2016 Olympics, interest in cupping therapies was at an all-time high. As people around the globe saw the signature bruising on the swimmers and other athletes, massage therapy professionals were being asked about this cupping therapy. At NC Massage School, we had an all-time high number of views about our MediCupping Therapy training in 2016. In our continuing efforts to provide the best, most-in-demand training to our students, we are pleased to bring this topic and training back as part of our 2017 continuing education options.

Though newly popular, cupping therapy is not new. In fact, it is an ancient treatment that has recently been adapted for modern body work. MediCupping involves the use of specialized cups and a vacuum to produce gentle separation between the layers of the skin. This allows renewed blood flow and water absorption in dehydrated and injured tissue, improving healing times and overall health and wellness.

MediCupping Therapy is effective at healing release toxins and inflammation from deep joint tissue. The suctioning power of the cups reaches into the soft tissue and works to pull those toxins towards the surface where the lymphatic system and the skin can draw them out of the body. This helps release scar tissue as well, even in old injuries. In addition to all of these benefits to the patient, MediCupping enhances the overall benefits of massage while decreasing the amount of strain the practitioner must endure.
