Myofascial Cupping Technique-Level 1

THE MYOFASCIAL CUPPING TECHNIQUE™ - LEVEL ONE
Locations:
Calgary & Edmonton
Instructor: David Sheehan (Australia)
Normal Price: $495.00
Register: http://www.chseducation.com/store/home.php

Due to demand, this October/November Tour has been added into David’s 2018 schedule. Places are limited and registrations are taken on a first in - first served basis so be quick to confirm your placement on David Sheehan's Myofascial Cupping Technique™ Level 1 workshop!

INTRODUCTION
The Myofascial Cupping Technique™ provides profound benefits for your clients, particularly with assisting the body in maintaining Range Of Motion, eliminating Myofascial Trigger Points and reducing restrictive and sometimes-painful fascial adhesions commonly found from repetitive movement originating from sports and the workplace. By reducing fascial adhesions, while encouraging optimal hydration levels of soft tissue, Myofascial Cupping can assist in reducing the incidence of injury and maintaining functional soft tissue.

The Myofascial Cupping Technique™ is a fabulous addition to the toolbox for Massage Therapists. It is a modified version of the ancient Eastern-style cupping with major differences that include targeting the musculoskeletal system rather than meridian systems used by traditional Chinese practitioners and using the cups in a moving sequence, rather than stationery.

This Level 1 foundation course is similar to the course David has taught to Physiotherapists and Soft Tissue Therapists at the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra, which is the peak body for elite athletes in Australia.

PRESENTER/FOUNDER - DAVID SHEEHAN (AUSTRALIA) 

DAVID SHEEHAN has a Bachelor of Applied Science (Human Movement), Diploma of Health Science (Remedial Massage) and Diploma of Education. His career highlights include working as a lead sports trainer with various football clubs, which included the use of vacuum cupping for both prevention of and treatment for injuries. Over time, David has developed these skills and now teaches his own energy efficient and effective cupping techniques to massage therapists and physiotherapists in Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the Unites States.

How does it work?

By creating a Negative Pressure (tensional) above the surface of the tissues, we decrease the atmospheric pressure allowing the tissue to be lifted and thus causing changes in pressure beneath the skin including the muscle and surrounding fascia.

Importantly, our gliding technique creates a traditional MFR technique (push/compression effect) using the leading rim of the cup, which is then followed by a ‘lifting’ negative pressure over the same area (pull effect). As the cup leaves the area we once again create a push/compression effect.

Who uses the Myofascial Cupping Technique™?

  • Massage & Remedial therapists
  • Myotherapists
  • Physiotherapists
  • Sport medicine professionals

Why you should attend this workshop?

  • Learn to lift and separate soft tissue, rather than compression techniques which can be painful and ineffective.
  • Change from the "thumb busting" day in day out approach to your day in the clinic.
  • Treat conditions all more effectively incorporating Negative Pressure which you cannot achieve using traditional Myofascial Release techniques.
  • Create change both on a musculoskeletal and on a subtle level (dampens sympathetic division of autonomic nervous system).
  • Produce painless results similar to deep tissue work.
  • Offer your clients an alternative to standard massage treatments.

What’s covered?

  • Current evidence-based research supporting the benefits associated with the Myofascial Cupping Technique™.
  • Use of equipment, infection control and contra-indications.
  • Anatomy of the fascia and its inter-relationship with the musculo-skeletal system.
  • After thorough demonstrations and discussion, students will practice exact area specific sequences including correct direction and amount of negative pressure to be applied.
  • Specific clinical applications including the treatment for Myofascial Trigger Points, Plantar Fasciitis and various shoulder conditions will be explored.
