CPE Course in Traditional Cupping Therapy & Myofascial Cupping



There are many types of cupping, but flame cupping is the most traditional cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine and has been around for thousands of years. Cupping is based on the belief that certain health problems can be caused by stagnant blood and a poor energy flow through your body. To reduce or prevent those health issues, cupping practitioners apply cups, typically glass, to your skin to create a pressure that sucks your skin inward. The pressure that the cups create draws blood to the affected area, increasing your blood flow overall.

The Le Spa Massage Academy was founded by Kim Le Roberston, an Australian migrant, with the goal of connecting other migrants to the country to raise their employability. Thus, LSMA helps to guide its students into employability and self-sufficiency. With the aid of these affordable and concise training courses, LSMA students can be on the path to lucrative employment in just a few short weeks. Kim started her journey in the massage therapy industry as an intern, and she was able to grasp the important fundamentals of massage therapy as well as the basics of top-notch customer service. This early foundation in the industry led to various other positions in a more upscale market including employment at the Six Senses Spa in the Evason Ana Mandara, a 5-star resort in Nha Trang, Vietnam. She was also able to ply her skills at the Six Senses Spa in the Puntacana Resort and Club in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. At this location, she was employed as both a spa therapist and as the delegated spa trainer. Her profession also took her to the Airways Hotel in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea where she worked as the spa director, and then back to her hometown of Nha Trang, Vietnam where she launched the full-service spa in the Novotel Hotel. In her nearly 20 years of working in the massage industry, Kim was able to build a lustrous reputation which led to many amazing opportunities. For example, she was invited to become the spa consultant and manager at the Grand Mercure Resort in Danang, Vietnam. At this posting, she was responsible for the creation of a new and modern-day spa facility where she recruited, hired, and trained the entire spa staff. Many of those employed at little or no prior experience in the field. Kim moved to Australia in 2014, and she brought with her a bachelor’s in business administration, her qualifications in Vietnamese massage, and her Sodashi therapy diploma. She also has qualifications in Thai massage and a certificate in Spa Management and Development from Thailand. Since living in Australia, she has added to her already impressive list of certifications and qualifications by adding the HLT52015 Diploma of Remedial Massage at Q Academy – Brisbane, a certificate in Anesi Skincare, and a dual diploma in Business Management & Marketing. She has also obtained a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment from TAFE Queensland. While she was gaining all of these additional certifications and qualifications, she was also maintaining her practical skills by working as a massage therapist in various spas around the country. Kim decided to create the Le Spa Massage Academy so that she could share her vast wealth of knowledge with others in the community. Through LSMA, she aims to support immigrants and other Australians wishing to broaden their career horizons. She looks forward to passing on her passion for massage to the country’s future therapists.
