“I am so grateful to have had the privilege to be trained by Amy. I have personally benefitted so much from receiving this therapy, it truly helps keep me mobile and pain-free. Utilizing cupping therapy in my practice has made my sessions more effective in addressing client issues and time-management. Amy is very knowledgeable, patient, and intuitive; all aspects that make her a great teacher! I was really apprehensive in the beginning to use these techniques (the cups can seem intimidating at first), but with her training am now confident in administering this therapy and am excited to continue exploring all of the different ways to utilize the cups.”
