I was very pleased with the information that was included. Was never bored and it very much kept me intrigued to the last page! I would absolutely order another course as well as recommending it to other LMT!

I enjoyed that this course was to the point, very well written and easy to follow. I learned new techniques that I will now be able to start using; as well as new information to help explain to my clientele.
- Sara Clouse, LMT
I do massage cupping, but it was great to review and refresh this material. I learned a lot of things that were not taught to me during the course I took. Great course and can't wait to take more.
- Deborah Kelly, LMT
Excellent course and it provided information and history that I wasn't aware of. I was very pleased with the course material.

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
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!
