Interested in a unique Cupping Therapy course that does not focus on any one 'type' of Cup?

Rather than focus on the types of cups available in the marketplace, this course will provide you with an intrinsic understanding of the treatments for the upper body that you can provide using Cupping Therapy. This approach provides therapists with the knowledge and skill on how to use a number of different types of cups to achieve the therapeutic outcomes they desire for their patients.

This Upper body cupping workshop will cover the techniques useful for treating patients who have a variety of musculoskeletal disorders.  We will explore the contribution that Cupping Therapy can have on a patient's pain symptoms and movement restrictions, and how attention to this might serve to alleviate those symptoms. 

In addition to reviewing the history and benefits of cupping, we will provide an overview of the various types of cupping treatments available as well as review how different types of cups can be used, the research related to cupping therapies, contraindications for cupping therapy, and condition specific treatments related to the upper body.

At the completion of this workshop, you will have the skills and information to broaden your practice by incorporating cupping therapies for your patients.

Instructor: Paul Kohlmeier, BPE, RMT, R.Ac.
Registered Massage Therapist and Registered Acupuncturist, Paul Kohlmeier is an experienced and skilled therapist who is also trained as a Traditional Chinese Medicine Herbalist. Graduating with a Physical Education degree from the University of Manitoba, Paul went on to obtain his Diploma in Massage Therapy from Wellington College and Diplomas in both Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine from the Hua Xia Acupuncture and Herb College of Canada. Paul has a wealth of information looking for ways to get out of his head…which has led him to teaching and lecturing over the last 15 years. 

Paul runs a community acupuncture practice, in addition to his Massage Therapy practice from his clinic based in Winnipeg, Manitoba. In addition to his keen interest in Massage Therapy and Chinese Medicine, Paul is a self-proclaimed research geek having participated in the World Fascia Congress, IN-CAM and the Massage Therapy Foundation Research Conference and loves bringing everything he learns into the treatment room as well as the classroom. 

Being certified in both Massage Therapy and Chinese Medicine, Paul has a unique ability to speak to the two different bodies of knowledge. He takes a decidedly different approach, working towards an explanatory narrative that represents current thinking and science, as well as adding a feedback-based model of explanation that includes a patient-directed approach.
