Therapeutic suction cups: fundamentals and connective tissues

Suction cups are very versatile therapeutic tools. To take advantage of this versatility, this course introduces the therapist to various techniques that will perform on the superficial and deep fascia, as well as on their myofascial and connective structures to loosen restrictions, thus favoring normalization. Since suction cups also have a significant impact on the lymphatic and circulatory systems, a drainage protocol, which combines this great tool with manual work, will be demonstrated.
