2-DAY: Myofascial Cupping Practitioner Certification AND Compression Band Flossing Practitioner Certification

Where:   PHOENIX, AZ

When:  Saturday, August 17, 2019 - Sunday, August 18, 2019






Course Description:

Day 1: Myofascial Cupping Practitioner Certification

Evaluate the concept of skin/fascial decompression and its ability to improve tissue mobility, improve movement and modulate pain. Through this hands-on learning experience, you will combine cupping and functional movement to produce the kinds of active treatment strategies that are revolutionizing rehab. Discover effective cupping treatments you can use for pain, swelling, tendinopathies, and more.

Day 2: Compression Band Flossing Practitioner Certification

Explore the anatomic, physiologic and neurologic effects of compression band flossing on connective tissue gliding, tissue traction and tissue compression. Learn how to combine compression bands and functional movement to produce the kinds of active treatment strategies that will deliver superior patient and client outcomes. During the extensive hands-on labs, you will explore the science of compression band flossing and fascial shearing that help improve joint mobility, reduce pain, and enhance movement.
