Explaining the tell-tale marks from cupping and scraping (khoodt, gua sha, cao gio) can be a daunting task. In this workshop we’ll focus on simple and efficient ways to help your client understand anatomy, physiology, and pathology from a traditional medicine perspective, what the markings mean, and why they need to bundle up after a treatment.

Material will include:

• Simply and effectively explaining Traditional models of anatomy, physiology, and pathology, and why it is important when using Traditional practices like cupping and scraping (gua sha, khoodt, cao gio, etc).

• Simply and effectively explaining the Traditional Medicine understanding of cupping and scraping marks to clients, client’s family members, and other health care professionals.

• How Traditional Medicine understandings affect client intake/interview, informed consent, and compliance with post treatment care instructions.

• Verbal, written, and visual (pictures and demonstration) tools for use with clients.

• Communicating the goals, mechanisms, and effects of Traditional practices like cupping and scraping to other health care professionals.

We’ll be using scraping as the model for this material – if you aren’t familiar with scraping, by the end of the workshop you’ll be able to safely and effectively use this wonderful technique on yourself and clients.
