- Samantha Sokolis, RMT
Incredible price for the course to get the ball rolling to incorporate cupping into my practice. Was excited that it is approved by state DORA, NCBTMB & ABMP. I think it might be helpful to have picture examples or video links (other than my random YouTube searches) to have a visual of more technique do's & don'ts before beginning with clients. Customer service is excellent & very easily reached. ~ Thanks!
- Erika Monet, RMT
This was a great introduction. I saw you recently added a 9 credit hour course on Cupping for Massage Therapists, excellent idea. Even for this class, it could be expanded to a 6 hour class with some additional videos to watch. I think some visuals of the different types of cups and showing a brief introduction to running cupping would be nice, unless you are concerned therapists would try the methods without a full and proper training.
- Diana Smith, LMT
Great course,fast, not expensive, an all around good experience.
