Course Format: Public Course / Instructor-Led / Open Enrollment
School/Trainer: Body Options
Training Center(s)/Venue(s): Makati City, Philippines
  V

The modern world of healing has embraced another wonderful ancient technique that has powerful results. Bentosa (Massage Cupping) is a modified version of "cupping therapy," which has been used extensively in Chinese medicine for several thousand years.

By creating suction and negative pressure, Bentosa is used to drain excess fluids and toxins; stimulate the peripheral nervous system; bring blood flow to stagnant muscles and skin; and loosen adhesions, connective tissue and stubborn knots in soft tissue.

There are two main Bentosa cupping techniques: stationary and moving. Stationary cups are placed on the skin and left for a period of five to 15 minutes in one location, or four to six cups may be applied and removed cyclically in a technique called "flash cupping." These are the methods most commonly used in Chinese medicine. Moving (or "massage cupping") is the more commonly used form of cupping among massage therapists and other health care practitioners. Prior to applying the cup, oil is administered to the skin to facilitat... [Read More]

School/Trainer: Delta College of Arts & Technology, Inc.
Training Center(s)/Venue(s): Baton Rouge, Lafayette, Covington, Slidell, United States

Massage therapists can specialize in over 80 different types of massage, called modalities. Swedish massage, deep tissue massage, reflexology, acupressure, sports massage, and neuromuscular massage are just a few of the many approaches to massage therapy. Most massage therapists specialize in several modalities, which require different techniques. Some use exaggerated strokes ranging the length of a body part, while others use quick, percussion-like strokes with a cupped or closed hand. A massage can be as long as two hours or as short as five or ten minutes. Usually, the type of massage therapists give depends on the client’s needs and the client’s physical condition. For example, they use special techniques for elderly clients that would not use for athletes, and they would use approaches for clients with injuries that would not be appropriate for clients seeking relaxation. There are also some forms of massage that are given solely to one type of client (for example, prenatal message and infant massage).
