Functional Release Cupping Course (Brisbane QLD)

Price $395 – $595 AUD Get tickets

Event description

Functional Release Cupping combines contemporary research, current theories on mechanisms of effect, pain and neuroscience with clinical reasoning to produce the most up-to-date and comprehensive approach to Cupping Therapy.

The concepts that underpin the FRC method were originally developed by ACE’s founder, Shaun Brewster over a decade ago.

This dynamic and patient centred approach to treatment is highly individualised to the patient’s presentation, with their functional deficit at the forefront in treatment design.
