Product Description

An Essential Tool for Soft Tissue Therapists for anatomically specific myofascial mobilisation & Practitioner Stress Reduction

This DVD will show you an efficient use of Vacuum Cupping for the Soft Tissue Therapist. The cupping technique is anatomically specific myofascial mobilisation. Unlike traditional cupping methods which can usually create bruise on the skin, these new and innovative techniques are anatomically based for myofascial mobilization. It can be integrated into your massage treatment and reduce excessive stress on the therapist’s body.

Instructor Robert Granter has been using the technique successfully for over 15 years in a Western Medicine Context. Myofascial Cupping can effectively restore soft tissue movement and mobility by stimulation of fascia and its fibroblastic activity. Rob will introduce the technique, show the proper equipment and the correct application techniques, then he will show you practical cupping work for various parts of the body.

This DVD can help you achieve efficient and effective outcomes. It is one of the few resources available that outlines the techniques, in careful detail, in a Western Medicine Context.
