Massage cupping is a powerful tool to enhance your practice. Adding movement makes it even more effective. Massage Cupping is an innovative technique that involves moving flexible silicone cups over your client's skin, along with stretching. The combined effect lifts the skin and superficial fascia over the underlying tissues.
Most massage work involves compressing tissues, but Kinetic Cupping lifts tissues. Along with soft tissue release, the synergy of these techniques helps to:
• Relieve chronic muscle tension
• Release adhesions
• Prepare clients for deeper work
The cups are transparent, simple to use, and don't require heat or combustion. Best of all, they're easy on your hands!Workshop topics include:
• History of cupping
• Cautions and contraindications
• Unique ways cups can be used with movement
You'll leave the workshop with a set of four silicone cups and a variety of ways to incorporate them with your next massage client.

Side Lying Massage
March 14 & 15, 2018
Wednesday & Thursday 9 am - 6 pm
16 hours ($300 + $20 materials)
Each client is unique. Whether it’s because of a specific body type, pregnancy, or a health condition, being face down (“prone”) for a massage isn’t always comfortable. Side lying massage expands your options for those clients. In fact, you can incorporate side lying techniques into all of your sessions!Clients enjoy the stretching and feeling of elongation from side lying massage – they’ll often ask for it again in the future.
Gain a New Perspective
The reasonside lying massage is effective for all body types is because it’s a new angle that allows for deeper work. It’s a mistake to think of the body as a pancake that needs to be “flipped” midway through a session. Therapists aren’t just limited to working on the front and back! Bodies are three-dimensional structures that should be worked on from different perspectives. The workshop will show you exactly how to do that, and more.
Expand Your Toolbox
You’ll learn how to:
Optimize Learning with a How-To Guide
- Give a flowing, full-body, side lying massage
- Apply targeted techniques to the shoulders, low back, and hips
- Use proper draping and bolsters
- Integrate side lying work into relaxation massage
How many times have you taken a class and forgot part of it after you left? We want these skills to stick!You’ll receive a workbook with photos and details of the techniques. The workbook will help with learning the concepts in class, and it also makes it easier to review the techniques afterward. For more information and to register, please visit:
