Great info! I've been cupping myself for almost 2 years so I felt like I understood the general technique/idea of cupping but this course has given me so much more information. I would definitely recommend it.


What a difference this course makes with my clients. I am so grateful to have chosen the Seminars for Health Dynamic Cupping course. I like the emphasis on not marking. It feels safe to me.

Jillian Parent

Cupping has completely changed my practice! I am so grateful for this incredible course and practice you have put together. I do cupping on 99% of my clients now. A couple of my clients that have chronic conditions were actually in tears about what a difference the cupping has made!! Thank you thank you!! I can’t wait to take many more courses from you!!


The instructors are amazing!! I just learnt Effective Tissue Manipulation. They make it easy to learn virtually with visuals and you can learn at your own pace. I'm excited to continue my education!! Thank you!!


Easy and well-explained techniques! Great video quality and awesome break down of body sections.


The course was really well put together, and I learned a great deal. It has given me a good foundation to build on with the modality of cupping.


Taking this course transforms me. This Dynamic Cupping motivated me to learn again and to improve my skill set to better provide for my clients. Thanks for being so caring and professional.
