Save your hands! Many clinical conditions benefit from fascial cupping as part of program design to improve physical performance and functional outcomes. Dr. Theresa Schmidt will walk you through an understanding of the fascial system, the effects of negative pressure modalities, and the evidence that supports the inclusion of cupping in both rehab and sports therapy applications for rapid, measurable results.

Now you can reap the benefits of modern cupping therapy in your practice. Negative pressure cupping tools provide you with an extra set of hands in a versatile tool that works with you to:

  • Promote functional movement
  • Release scar tissue and fascial adhesions
  • Manage trigger points
  • Improve circulation and lymphatic drainage and
  • Modulate pain

You will experience the benefits of cupping techniques with clinical tips on how to utilize specialized manual therapy tools alone or in combination with multimodal therapies and exercise to improve functional outcomes and physical performance. Best of all? These results will be measurable!

Immediately integrate the use of rehab cupping therapy into your practice to save your hands, add value to clients’ therapy and sports programs, and make your practice even more successful.
