The Ancient Art of Cupping – Asheville, North Carolina

October 5, 2018

$175.00 – $250.00

Susan presents the Ancient Art of Cupping with the benefit of her numerous years in practice and years of synthesizing available information. She will begin with a lecture exploring and differentiating all the different styles of suction techniques, as well as gwa sha. Susan will discuss at length the reasons for cupping, what the various shades of color on the skin mean, how to use cupping as a diagnostic tool, and how and why toxins build up in the muscles and/or joints. Diagrams of specific cupping patterns will be provided. Significant time will be devoted to patient and doctor interface, safety concerns, and post-cupping expectations. In the late afternoon attendees will break into a clinical setting for practice of the suggested cupping patterns. Susan will demonstrate one or two important cupping patterns and then circulate as attendees work on each other.

Lunch will be provided.

PDA credits: 6.5 units

Handouts will be provided; no books are required.
