Cupping for Massage Therapists (Section 1)
Cupping massage brings the ancient art of cupping into modern-day massage practice, allowing for a unique approach to the treatment of fascia and body fluids. Cupping can affect deeper tissue, treat fascial restrictions, and increase range of motion, all with little stress on your hands. It takes only one day to learn and you will walk away with a whole new technique to add to your skills. Cupping goes beyond simple fascial techniques – effects on angiogenesis, metabolism and immune response will be explored. Physiological changes will be discussed and demonstrated in the practical component. The theory will be put in to practice in the course, where application will cover more than just the back. Techniques will also be applied to scars, fascia, joints, trigger points, muscle imbalances and even the pleura.
Traditional cupping (fire cupping) is restricted to acupuncturists and TCM practitioners, so will not be taught in this course.
Shenan is a Registered Massage Therapist (MTAM) and a Registered Acupuncturist (CTCMPAO). She began her massage practice in 2002. An interest in eastern medicine led her to begin studying acupuncture in 2008. Since completing her acupuncture diploma, Shenan has immersed herself in the study of many different philosophies and practices of acupuncture. Her focus is on bridging knowledge and respect of the ancient traditions while incorporating more modern methods when applicable, especially integrating complementary therapies while regarding the body holistically. Her approach to treatment therefore incorporates a diverse range of modalities from acupuncture and massage therapy, including: cupping massage, meridian theory, myofascial work, injury rehabilitation, craniosacral, visceral techniques and many others. Shenan is the Director and an instructor at the College of Acupuncture and Therapeutics, an instructor at the Massage Therapy College of Manitoba, and a frequent presenter at various seminars for fellow health care professionals and the general public.
