About Cupping Massage
Using her extensive knowledge of massage and other body therapies Christine Courtney wrote this course with an acupuncturist.
As Christine travels abroad teaching this course she has met people who are using cups therapeutically in children’s hospitals in Russia and for acute illness such as sore throats. All of this new knowledge gained is constantly being added to our course making it the most up to date and relavent Cupping Course available.
OBUS Cupping Massage is a modified version of the common practice of cupping therapy used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
Another names for it are
- Dry cupping as we do not draw blood as with the therapy of Wet Cupping also known as Hijama Therapy
- Cold Cupping as we do not use flame to heat the cup before use
- Non-ignatious as we use suction to attach the cups not flame
The therapist learns to massage using the cups instead of their hands. The results that this simple treatment produces are impressive.

“This is such a different type of massage. It is so deep for the client but takes no effort from the therapist. I feel great after receiving a cupping massage myself. It was amazing to see the different reactions from the students on the course. I really enjoyed this course”.
