The advanced cupping course teaches many new and specialist techniques not usually taught outside of Asia and includes the use of geothermal cupping, water cupping, an overview of wet blood cupping and our specialist extra strength protocol. On this course, we jump right into the theory and practice of the advanced techniques in Chinese Cupping and do not cover basic skills, therefore having a qualification in Chinese Fire Cupping before you attend is essential.

You will receive a full certificate for the course which can be upgraded to an optional diploma by submitting 10 Case studies 3 months after course completion. These are assessed by an external examiner (examiner fee applies).

This is a totally unique course teaching techniques not normally shown outside Asia. Unlike many UK courses we show authentic techniques as used in real Chinese and Japanese clinics, that provide you with the ability to give your clients the best results. The course protocols are based on Chinese medicine theory and modern scientific physiological responses, which provide you with the new tools to take your cupping to the next level.
This course includes new techniques and advanced protocols to increase the effectiveness of the cupping treatments with a variety of common clinical issues.
We show you the small details of how to maximise your skills whilst discussing the issues and common mistakes arising in treatments, that many course providers do not discuss.

Assessment is by observation of students performing the therapy during the practical sessions to establish safe practice. Each student must be observed practising correct, safe, protocol in order to be deemed safe to practice and gain a full certificate. (equates to 6 hours CPD).
Optional Diploma Available (equates to 26 hours CPD).

“The advanced cupping was a fantastic course and as soon as I left I was confident in what I was doing and how to apply the techniques. It was also a great eye opener to the world of Chinese medicine and I can’t wait to learn more.”
Chris Ireland, Reflex, Little Sutton, Cheshire

“I absolutely enjoy going to Total Therapy Training, they are well organised and full of knowledge, and the Advanced Cupping course was no different. With this course you get lots of hands on practice, and the endless support, good community and the chance to go back and ask anything anytime is the selling fact. Total Therapy is like a big therapy family you are part of. You meet like minded people, share your experiences and learn endlessly. It’s addictive and once are come you will want to learn more.”
Martina Bencova, MB Therapy & Training, Warrington / Cheshire


We don’t teach you to perform Fire Cupping on this course so you must already have a qualification in fire cupping, or book our Chinese Fire Cupping course first. Please note if you turn up on the day without any fire cupping skills, you will not be able to take part in any part of the course and you will not gain a certificate. Apart from that we do not require any other qualifications as a pre-requisite.

Don’t worry, everyone has fun trying to get things right at the start of the practical sessions, you should expect to get rather wet from the water cupping especially, but everything does come together in the relaxed, supportive atmosphere and people leave with some great skills and surprise themselves.

As this course is a CPD for those already qualified in Chinese Fire Cupping, you may not need extra insurance for this. Please note, it is always advisable to check with you insurance provider if they will cover you for any qualification if you are unsure, as they will have their own prerequisites.

Yes we do, if you send us a message via our contact form, then we can give you a quote for private training.
