8th September 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

lymphatic system



Cupping has grown in popularity and is being widely used by clinicians as an effective treatment method. In this webinar we will examine the difference between standard cups and a targeted negative pressure device, LymphaTouchLymphaTouch provides pulsating negative pressure and mechanical vibrations to increase lymphatic drainage, manipulate tissues and relieve swelling.   
Cupping can be beneficial for affecting: 
– Fascia 
– Lymphatics 
– Scarring  
Both of these modalities have a place in treatment and this session will explore how they can impact on your clinical practice.  
Benefits of offering such treatments are: 
– Increased healing 
– Break down of scar tissue  
– Faster treatments 
– Patient tolerance 
– Improved objective results  
We will have a 20-30 minute presentation from Drew Contreras followed by an interactive Q&A session. 
In the webinar we will; 
Discuss the benefits of cupping and targeted negative pressure  
Compare and contrast their differences 
Explain the benefits to your management of MSK conditions
