>>> ACT PREREQUISITES <<<
The Advanced Cupping Techniques curriculum is designed for Cupping Therapists who are at the intermediate - experienced level of Cupping competency and who have been actively providing Cupping Therapy in their therapeutic practice for at least 6 months.
The format of this workshop is such that practitioners are hands on within the 1st hour and remain so until the end of the program - either providing or receiving.
With 24 treatments to learn/provide/receive there is not time in the 16 hrs to learn how to do the Cupping - you will be too busy learning new procedures.
That being understood, it is vitally important that those attending are ready to follow the program and perform the treatments without delays in learning how to perform proper Cupping Therapy or operate the equipment.
This curriculum builds upon the foundations of the *ICTA Contemporary Cupping Methods and the *EarthSpa Health Traditions Negative Pressure Massage Programs. There are other education programs in the application of Cupping Therapy that may cover the basics of Cupping well enough to prepare most practitioners for the ICTA Advanced Class.
Please email us with a copy of the continuing education Cupping Program you have attended.
