Our new RockPods course applies a modern, manual therapy and pain science take on the use of “cupping”.  Cupping creates a decompressive force in the tissues immediately under the cup, with a compressive force created around the rim of the cup.  This creates a different stimulus to the tissues and the nervous system and for some people can be a relaxing way of treating tight or sore areas.

Our RockPods course teaches concepts that can be applied to many regions of the body.  It is currently available online and we will add the in-person version if there is sufficient demand.

The RockPods, once attached to the skin, can be manipulated by the therapist (“external glide”), through the patient moving (“internal glide”), or a combination of both.  The RockPods can be used with varying levels of decompression and, by adding in movement of the patient, can be a more “active” intervention that involves the patient.

The recorded video you receive is 45 minutes in length.  However, the time taken to complete the content depends on how much time you spend practicing the applications in the videos practical segments.   We estimate the total time to complete the course is 1 hour, and that is the amount of time we put on the electronic certificates we send to customers on completion of the course. 

Course Outline:

  1. Introduction and background of cupping
  2. Application principles for RockPods
  3. RockPod techniques
  4. Examples of use with different areas of the body
  5. Using RockPods as a movement cue

    Very informative, easy to understand course. Excellent examples and demonstrations of applications. I’ve implemented numerous techniques already into my treatments with great success. Highly recommend this course.
