Course Description

Cupping Therapy Diploma Course

Updated Course May 2024

What is cupping?

Definition: Cupping is an Alternative Medicine, and therapeutic practice where glass cups which have been heated are applied to the skin surface precisely positioned along the meridians of the body. This positioning of the cups will create suction and it is believed to evoke and stimulate the energy flow through and around the body.

Cupping is used to stimulate healing by bringing blood to a specific region of that body part.

Cupping assists the body’s tissue to create a new flow of blood which helps create anti-inflammatory chemicals within the body and is ideally suited to muscle, tissue related problems.

Cupping is generally painless.

It is reported that many well-known movie stars and Hollywood actors have tried cupping for various problems.

Well-known people reported to have used cupping are the actress Gwyneth Paltrow, Oprah Winfrey, Jennifer Aniston, Lady gaga, Victoria Beckham and Brad Pitt to name just a few.

How does cupping work?

As we grow older our body reduces in activity such as with the loss of muscle and reduction in blood flow. We also become tighter, stiffer and our skin becomes looser and wrinkles start to appear.

By placing the cups over specific body areas we can reduce the effects that accompany ageing. Precisely where the cup is placed is where blood is pulled into that region and the tissues under the skin are saturated with a fresh flow of blood while the suction or the vacuum also removes stagnant blood out of that area.

Once the new blood is forced into the tissues, the body starts to create brand-new blood vessels called neovascularisation or new blood vessel formation thus producing a new feed of nutrients and oxygen to the body’s tissue.

  • Cupping is ideal for the following:
  • Increasing circulation
  • Increasing oxygenation
  • Improving tissue delivery
  • Replacing old and stagnant blood
  • Creation of new blood vessels
  • Stretch fascia and connective tissue
