What is Cupping?

The ancient therapy of cupping is now steadily being adopted as a complementary and alternative treatment in many fields of bodywork. This modality utilizes various types of cupping equipment, many of which are readily available, easy and safe to use. The cups lift the tissue with applied suction, offering the potential for relief from pain, inflammation, digestive problems, circulation and stress relief.


An ancient alternative technique has found its
right place in the modern healing world!

How is MCT different than all the other ‘Cupping’ Education companies?

Modern Cupping Therapy does not teach Traditional Chinese Medicine applications, nor any wet or ‘bleeding’ cup applications.

Our students are from all various fields of bodywork and wellness.  Acupuncturists come to these courses and simply love the variations they learn!  TCM practitioners take away many useful techniques and concepts, while still embrace their traditional applications.

‘A very simple, cleanly presented concise guideline to modern cupping. This book provides visual step by step instructions so you can safely administer the protocols on yourself or a loved one. For the Professional practitioner this book opens up a whole new World of possibilities. I add Shannon’s regimen to my existing modalities to help my patients move more fully into the wellness zone.’

Why take any of these live workshops instead of an online course or any other video training?

To truly grasp this type of bodywork, you simply must attend a live workshop! Over the years, we meet new students who have had training outside of live courses and what they learned at a live course brought their level of application – and their results – to a whole new level!  There is nothing like hands-on practice, assistance from experienced educators to help better your applications – and you can ask questions!

I started using cups after watching a few videos and taking an online course about cupping, and not only was I not doing much more than marking people (actually bruised a few) but I just wasn’t sure about the work.  I finally made it to a class with MCT and I am so happy I did!  The improvement I felt in my technique, the results I started to get, and being able to work with the teachers was totally worth the time in a live class! I can’t wait for more classes with them!! T.B., CMT

Not a massage therapist? Acupuncturist? Can I still attend and get credit hours?

Anyone in the healthcare industry is welcome!  Presently MCT is NCBTMB, NCCAOM & BOC approved for continuing education credit.  While we are continuing to acquire various professional providerships, students from all areas of healthcare have enjoyed learning how to safely and effectively integrate therapeutic cupping into their existing practices with great results!

‘Even though I could not use the credit hours, this modality has become a positive addition to my practice.  Our entire staff uses Modern Cupping Therapy regularly with great, consistent results.’ M.R., DC

“As an athletic trainer, I’d use cups for fascial decompression. Now that I’ve taken the Modern Cupping seminar, I have a better understanding of how cups affect the various systems of the body. The athletes in the training room will benefit from this new expanded knowledge.” – T.B.R, ATC

What is the difference between Modern Cupping Therapy and the  other larger ‘Cupping’ Education companies?

At MCT we do not want to be the biggest, we strive to be the best!  With years of both practical experience and education in the field of therapeutic cupping, a shared passion for the work, and attention to detail, we promise you will learn how to safely and effectively use Modern Cupping Therapy in your practice!

‘I have trained with every cupping company I could find and by far, Modern Cupping Therapy surpassed all my other class experiences!’  P.V., CMT
