Webinar Description:
This webinar will discuss the modality intervention of negative pressure manual therapy (NPMT), also referred to as "cupping" or vacuum suction therapy. An introduction to the operational principles of the combination of both negative pressure and mechanical vibration on lymphatic drainage will be illustrated. Clinical studies that relate to the use of NPMT on edema will also be presented. Demonstration of the technology will also be introduced as examples.

Learning Objectives:
Upon completion of this course, participants will:

  1. Differentiate between positive and negative pressure and its effects on the lymphatic system
  2. Explain the operational principles of NPMT and High Frequency Mechanical Vibration
  3. Understand the both relative and absolute contraindications of NPMT
  4. Observe the principles of lymphatic drainage using NPMT in video demonstrations
