MSK assessments are taught before the application of each technique to assess the effectiveness of the techniques.

The course investment includes a Cupping Kit to take away and start practising immediately.

Functional Integrated Cupping Therapy (FICT) is based on the ancient history and application of old Chinese medicine.

FICT reviews the history of vacuum therapies, and their application in the treatment of various MSK conditions.

Cupping Therapy is now used more commonly and enjoyed by athletes in professional sports as well as everyday people. As a result, our courses have been attended by private and professional therapists of all age groups.

We understand and re-iterate during the course that there is no credible science to back up cupping therapy. No wild claims are made on this course. However, there is a reason it is still used today in society and the sporting environment.

We look to “marry” this ancient modality to modern science assessment and pain management protocols. And do before and after movement screens following the application of the cups.

If you can manage this incredibly popular course get in touch asap to book. We will show assessment protocols, dry cupping techniques and massage cupping to finish.

This is an incredibly practical course and has been very well received by all levels of therapists who attend.

As an adjunct therapy to various medical and non-medical professionals.

Delegates will learn how to examine a client and apply negative pressure with the use of glass cups.

Cupping may alleviate pain, may decrease swelling and may increase the range of motion in joints all of which can assist the healing process.

By creating negative pressure above the surface of the tissues, we allow the surface tissue to be lifted upwards and change the pressure on underlying tissues, such as nerves, capillaries and fascia.

Eligibility
