Practitioner Cautions and General Information

Before you offer cupping to your clients, you should make sure to receive the proper training.

It takes time and practice to administer any modality correctly.

Make sure to check with your licensing and registration board to confirm if cupping is within your scope of practice or if there are any restrictions. Some boards only accept plastic and silicone cups, some accept fire cupping with glass cups. It is also important that you check with your licensing body to utilize proper cleaning procedures. It is important to understand the levels of cleaning and sterilization, and more information is available from the CDC. Refer to page 10, and page 71

Some jurisdictions restrict practitioner's use of certain types of tools, especially if they use any kind of mechanical device. Cupping is a simple yet powerful form of alternative healing. If performed correctly it can be a wonderful form of complementary therapy. If done incorrectly it can at the least be ineffective or, worse, it can cause negative results. Make sure to receive proper training before using it on your clients.

CE certificates will be issued no less than 30 days after the course has been purchased, and only once we are notified that the course has been completed.

In order to complete this course, you will need a set of cups to practice with. We recommend a set of 8 silicone cups to start, as you practice you may find that you need more. Typically we recommend you have at least four sizes of cups, two in each size. Each person will have their preferences, so this is merely a suggestion.
