Cupping: Colds & Flu

  • Emerald Acupuncture Center 655 East 11th, Suite #9 Eugene Oregon 97402 USA (map)

In this workshop you’ll learn two different cupping sequences – to help in preventing, and aid the recovery of, colds and flu. Easy to learn and quick to perform (a full treatment can last 10-20 minutes), no cupping or bodywork experience is necessary. This is the perfect workshop for those wishing to dive into the world of cupping.

While we’ll be learning with traditional fire cups, the same sequences can be used with the more modern plastic, squeeze bulb, and rubber cups. But, once you experience the glass fire cups…chances are good they will become the tools of choice.

Workshop material will include:

  • safety for the client and practitioner
  • effects of cupping treatments
  • safely working with fire cups
  • moving/sliding cupping sequence
  • intermittent/flash cupping sequence
  • post treatment care

All cupping materials will be provided, and cupping kits will be available for purchase after the workshop. We’ll be practicing both on massage tables and in chairs – but both sequences can easily be performed practically anywhere.
