This 2-hour introductory course is designed to give an overview of the research and basis for cupping and Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM). This is a home-study course and therefore does not teach clinicians how to perform cupping and IASTM techniques but instead review the relevant physiology and most current evidence on the theories behind these modalities as well as the key fundamentals. Clinicians should always perform treatments within their clinical scope. At the end of the course, participants will take a 15-question quiz to ensure comprehension and must pass with a score of 75% or higher. 

The course access instructions will be emailed to you after payment has been processed. Please note that access to the content takes up to 2 hours after registration is complete.
