Cupping 101

People became more aware of the Traditional Chinese Medicine strategy called "cupping" after the last summer olympics when swimmer, Michael Phelps had perfectly round bruising marks on his back.   

 

Cupping offers healing for sore muscles, joint aches and pains.  

This workshop will review the mechanisms and benefits of cupping and offer instructions on how to perform gentle cupping on yourself (no bruises or marks) using soft silicon cups.  

Gua Sha 101

Gua Sha is an ancient Traditional Chinese Medicine intervention that is now widely used and accepted in Western medicine.  It is commonly used by Physical Therapists and Chiropractors.  Among these professionals it is referred to as "Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Massage" (IASTM).  Gua Sha uses a tool to gently scrape the uppermost tissues for the promotion of blood flow and healing. 

This workshop will cover basic how-tos, a review of Gua Sha tools,  and indications for using Gua Sha for healing and pain relief.
