This 12 CE Hour Orthopedic Cupping class is offered as a 1-day or 2-day class on the following dates:
- 1-day Class, Sunday, October 20, 2019, 9 am - 9:30 pm
This class shows how to apply stationary/air cupping over traditional orthopedic injuries such as tennis elbow, etc., and how to practice a full body cupping massage with oil. We will spend time learning about myofascial restrictions, trigger points, muscle tension, and how we might relieve these orthopedic medical conditions with cupping applications and techniques. The concept of our Othopedic Cupping class is to apply this ancient eastern medicine to western musculoskeletal issues and bodywork. This 12 hour class also includes cupping history, theory, contraindications, equipment information (including types and care), a brief vacuum therapies lecture as well as multiple instructor demonstrations and hands-on practice time.
We will also show you several different types of cups that can be used with orthopedic bodywork that are available on the market today, and review which cups might be the best type for your use and practice. We do not sell cups, but we can show you where you can purchase them on your own (for an average of $25 per set), in reputable online stores. You are also welcome to bring any cupping equipment that you have to class to review with the instructor (please do not bring any electrical machines). We do not recommend that you purchase cups prior to your training so that you can learn, feel and see the different types of cups and cupping materials that are on the market today (we will show you glass, plastic and silicone cups). And, you'll also learn the individual pros and cons of the different cupping materials and mediums available for orthopedic bodywork and general cupping purposes.
This class does not use any electrical machines to perform cupping. This is modern up-to-date class with real hands-on cupping applications that uses individual cups to promote circulation, pain relief, increased range of motion, athletic performance, etc.
The cupping portion of class is for students who are new to cupping. The cupping portion of class would not be would not be appropriate for therapists who are already practicing or proficient in Tuina, TCM or Cupping. The entire cupping class solely addresses orthopedic/western musculoskeletal issues - Chinese Meridians are not addressed or covered in this class.

About your Instructor:
Selena Belisle has practiced massage therapy for 30 years. She started with sports massage in 1989 and sought formal “full body” massage therapy training in 1995 in a 1,000+ hour program at the Massage Institute of New England in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Selena completed her first Traditional Chinese Medicine Certification from the NE School of Acupuncture in the 1990s. She went on to complete a 2nd TCM Certification which included cupping, tuina and Chinese healing methods in a month-long program from the Beijing Hospital in Beijing China in 2000. She has also travelled to Xi’an China to view the terracotta warriors, the outskirts of Beijing to walk “The Great Wall”, as well as Shanghai China to view the Huangpu River aka “the Bund”. Her touring of China was most importantly used to spend time amongst the Chinese people and learn more about their history, practices and culture. She has visited many authentic Chinese temples, burial grounds, places of healing and sacred sites as part of her Chinese studies.

Selena also founded and managed one of New England’s largest alternative health care clinics in the 1990s, which included 4 acupuncturists and 4 chiropractors and over 40 massage therapists from 1996, until she sold in 2005. It was here where she helped thousands of others with TCM care including extensive cupping massage techniques and other forms of orthopedic bodywork.
