with Kimberly S. Hart
March 28 from 6:30-8:30pm, and March 29 & 30 2019, from 9am-5:30pm each day
In this first level, we will be exploring differences and similarities of Asian, Ancient European, and Central American styles of cupping, which can be used separately or combined for a very elegant treatment. We will be practicing on each other, and will be able to use these techniques immediately. We will also learn the art and science of gua sha, (or scraping) and, time permitting, begin Moxa as well. Theory and research of the efficacy and effects of cupping will also be explored. Please be prepared to have a person ready to practice on the evening after the first full day of class, so you are ready for the next steps in class the following day.
