Description

Until now, choices were limited if you wanted to learn how to treat with medical cups.

You had to read a book or attend an expensive class that locked you into treating patients with specific, complex protocols.

Not anymore.

FMT RockPods introduces the concept of skin/fascial decompression to help improve tissue mobility, enhance movement and modulate discomfort* with the use of myofascial cups. This course will cover the anatomical, physiological and neurological effects of myofascial cupping on connective tissue gliding, tissue traction and tissue decompression. FMT RockPods will introduce and discuss skin and fascial decompression concepts and present evaluation techniques for the dermal and fascial systems. Additionally, the course explores using cupping techniques for rehabilitation and performance applications such as postural cueing, biomechanical pattern assists and to enhance visualization of movement.

Interventions using myofascial cupping will be reviewed and informed by current research, the interventions will be integrated into current rehabilitation and performance applications. Myofascial Cupping is an ancient therapy, first documented over 5,000 years ago, clearly Olympic and professional athletes have gotten the message that what’s old is still new!  Though cups and techniques have changed over time, today’s cups still create a suction and vacuum that allows for a decompression effect to take place under the skin.

Functional Movement Training (FMT) courses are taught by industry leading experts in movement assessment, performance and rehabilitation. CEUs may be offered for DC, ATC, PT, LMTs, LAc, OTs and personal trainers. If your profession & state is unavailable, we do not currently offer CEUs – however, we are continually adding additional licenses.
