Our courses are why healers and massage therapists from around the world have been blown away by how happy their clients have been because Gua Sha and Cupping have relieved their pain.

Why Our Students are So Happy to Have New Pain Relieving Skills

Most so-called pain experts believe that we need to “manage” people’s pain. But our first hope is that we can relieve people’s pain.

For thousands of years, people around the world have been using Gua Sha and Cupping to do just that.

If only more people knew about it and more healers could actually do it…

I learned early on in my career that people want pain relief. If someone comes into my clinic in pain, I better send them away feeling better, if not all better, at least enough better that they have hope!

And that’s where comes in.

We’ve created on-line courses so you can learn Cupping and Gua Sha today so you can start helping more people tomorrow. We also have an exclusive on-line group where students ask questions and share thoughts and feelings about helping people with their pain. In addition, our blog is where I show you the exact tips, strategies and techniques you need to help more people get out of pain. 

Oh, while you’re here make sure you sign up for free updates to learn the strategies that I’m talking about:

What Our Students are Saying...

“This course has helped me become proficient and gain enough knowledge to increase my healing knowledge and potential for my clients and future clients. I have become known in my area for my cupping and pain-relief massage over the past few months. I have the medical and massage experience, but adding gua sha and cupping has set me above the competition exponentially. I am so happy and excited that I purchased this course, for so many reasons, but really because now I can better help even more people.” 

—Dr. J. Celeste Ruland, ND LMT CPT

I LOVE the way the class is setup in easy, short, informative clips. It’s perfect for breaks in between clients. What a great job you’ve done. I thoroughly enjoyed this workshop and have successfully integrated Gua Sha into my existing massage practice. My clients love the results, and I love having a new skill that is not taxing on my body. Thank you for offering this course.

—Brad Surette, Massage Therapist

Thank you, Leta, for this excellent training in Gua Sha… I loved the course and look forward to future modules! Your gentle way of speaking is clear and the videos of you performing Gua Sha on clients made it easy to see and understand. I would recommend this course to others. 10 stars!
