Course Info - Cupping therapy has been used for centries across the different continents for healing. The College of Oriental Body Balance has brought it into the 21st Century by modernising its use for present day Western clients and their conditions. This therapy involves the using of warm suction glass jars on an oiled body as a therapeutic massage system. Designed to treat a wide range of physical problems from pain and muscle spasms to cellulite, colds and flu. Techniques - Oil is applied to the body with massage strokes to loosen up the tissue; the cups are then applied over the oil on the part of the body to be treated, then the cups are moved in particular ways to produce a deeply healing, stimulating and drawing massage. The cups are warmed and applied to the body by creating a vacuum. The suction and warmth have a dramatic effect on the immune system of the body by moving blood and lymph, stimulating the muscles and spinal nerves. You will learn to apply the cups to the back, shoulders, legs and stomach for a variety of conditions.
