Hello everyone! I am on day 3 of ICTA's CCM course in Asheville, NC with Mark Perido. It has been a fantastic learning experience and I am even more convinced that cupping is a great modality. I have been using cups for about 10 months as a self-taught research driven amateur and getting great results. 

It is unfortunate that my liability insurance will not cover fire cupping, but the class is full of information and a great book for future reference. I plan to take the advanced course in September in ATL as well. I am so grateful for all the effort ICTA has put forth to make their cupping course the best one out there. 3 days of information packed learning and focus on a variety of applications(not just spa applications.) Best CE course I've taken(and I have more than 300 ce hours.)

Hey folks, I just completed the Contemporary Cupping Methods Course by the ICTA's Jesse Maclean.  OMG!!! It was awesome.  I have to say the information, the way it was presented and the knowledge she shared with us was astounding.

I recommend it to anyone who is interested in taking this 3 day course.

If anyone else out there has some tips on "introductions" to clients and others, please let me know.

Thanks Robin. There are more and more kids with special needs these days. Esp. ADD, Autism and ADHD.

Thanks for wanting to help them.

Hi Kim...i'm very interested in this study.  In Florida I had a pediatric client with very special needs for several years.  I am not in Colorado and would love to expand my business here to include special needs children.  I'll check out your website.

keep joyful thoughts,

Thanks Laura - that is a great idea! My wife is a MT, so we can do this together. It will be a great way to get started until I'm able to take a class. I didn't want to spend $80 if the DVD wasn't good enough.

After the Baguanfa Rubber Cups are washed a couple of times they will lose most of the rubber odor. The Baguanfa Silicone Cups (Aqua colored) have no odor at all if that is an issue.

I just started using the Baguanfa Rubber Cups. They are really great, except they do have a strong smell. It really is amazing how fast the fascia releases. I can't wait to take a class and start cupping on clients. Can anyone recommend a DVD I can study until then? Is the Anita Shannon DVD good?
