 What Our Students Are Saying...

The western world is rediscovering Chinese medicine and Leta Herman is a leader of the exploration team. In this educational pod, we learn (or relearn) that Gua Sha is a simple yet powerful technique for healing. Combining her years of practice with a sincere passion for human health, Leta makes the philosophy and the reality of Gua Sha available to both the home practitioner as well as the experienced professional.

- Tom Thompson, Shiatsu Student

"[This class] has set me above the competition exponentially. Now I can expand my business to help even more people!"
— Dr. J. Celeste Ruland, ND LMT CPT

I came across Gua Sha from an incorrect search on Amazon. Trying to learn exactly what it was, I found that it interested me very much, and I signed up for the class that night. Learn GuaSha was a great class and well worth my time! The layout, instructors, and information was excellent. I have already started to incorporate it into my massage practice as well as self-care and treatment at home. I highly recommended this course! A+

- Licensed Massage Practitioner

This class is impeccably laid out, comprehensive and clear. I cannot think of anything I wanted to know that was not thoroughly covered.

- Doryne Pederzani-Dinneen, LMT

As a student and emerging practitioner of Five Element Chinese medicine, I found these video lessons to be invaluable to my understanding of the technique and how I can use this wellness strategy to enhance the bottom line of my business.

- New Student, Gua Sha Course

I'm so excited I found this class! This is the most amazing technique, and I can't wait to start making my clients feel better faster!

- Lynn McCoy, LMT

This class is very informative. The videos are clear and easy to hear. Leta is very efficient in her demonstration. I loved it!

- Mary Davis, Reiki Master Teacher

"I believe this course is set up to provide maximum information and designed perfectly for self-paced education. I enjoyed how the modules were broken up and how detailed each video was. I like the format because I was able to take notes and go back and review information that I didn't quite understand. This course is very thorough and very informative on the history of cupping and answered many questions that my existing clientele has about adding cupping therapy to their self-care regimen."

- Yoga teacher, student and ex-professional athlete

As an EMT/ firefighter for 15+ years, personal trainer, athlete and power lifting coach, I understand the types of injuries people receive on a daily basis. After years of dealing with nagging injuries and seeing coworkers and family complaining of injuries, I decided to begin to learn how to self treat injuries. My chiropractor introduced me to cupping and from there I researched other alternative treatment options, and Gua Sha appeared. After seeing a few videos online I knew I had to take a course to better understand the technique needed for proper application. This course not only taught me proper technique, but a new way to treat and heal injuries and everyday pain. Now my whole family, student athletes and my wife who is a hairdresser, now enjoy themselves with a lot less pain and discomfort. My coworkers and personal training clients are much happier now as well. Thank you for putting this course together.

- Jose Garcia, EMT, Personal Trainer, Power Lifting Coach

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 my clientele and expand my business to help even more people!

—Dr. J. Celeste Ruland, ND LMT CPT

"I really enjoyed taking this class! I was able to listen and learn from the comfort of my home, and was able to comfortably practice on friends and family. I love it!"

- Licensed Massage Therapist

"Great course. Easy to implement into your practice and the results are immediate. Would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in cupping. Leta is an amazing resource."

- Sahra Chute, RMT

"I have taken one other cupping class taught by a massage therapist, and it was lacking in a lot of ways. I am so glad I found this one because it filled the gaps the other class was missing and taught a whole lot more! "

- Licensed Massage Therapist

"I really enjoyed this class and learning more about the meridians. I'm so glad this class was taught with Chinese medicine theory attached."

- Andrea M. Fain, LMT

I have worked with chronic/acute pain issues for the last 24 yrs and chose this course initially for the CEUs. Upon listening to the first few videos I realized that I could potentially use this in my practice. After practicing on a few people and having their symptoms clear up quickly I am now hooked. Thank you for providing this information in a great and relaxing manner.

- Joe Badstein, Massage Therapist and Professional Kinesiology practitioner

I practiced on was a landscaper [who] has been complaining of forearm pain, which he calls “exploding forearms”! Using the technique of flicking the spoon at the end of the stroke was awesome!! I was really surprised by how little pressure I was using and how quickly the sha showed!! He was really interesting to work on, as even very gentle pressure was tender so adding this technique was really helpful for him. After the session he felt immediate relief that has lasted the last week!! I felt relaxed during the session and it felt really good!

- New Student, Gua Sha Course

This was a great project and really made me think about my technique and how to be better!! Thanks so much! It made me realize that I need to practice using different holds as well as using other diagnostic techniques, like the pressing and releasing, in order to identify areas to use gua sha instead of theorizing where it would be useful! Really great!

- New Student, Gua Sha Course

The course content and material were very thorough and clear. Leta and Jaye's lessons were well-organized, well-delivered, and well-illustrated. Thank you for this wonderful course. It has already made a difference to some of my family members.

- Marshall Garland, Tui Na practitioner

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!

- Ellen O'Donnell, Holistic Aesthetician and practicing Reiki Master


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

Just as I began this course, I was feeling a load of stress in my neck and shoulders. So much so, I was having a stress headache. I decided to do Gua Sha on my neck and shoulders. There was so much Sha coming out it was incredible. When I was done about 80% of my pain was gone.

- Rachel Adams, LMT

"...Clients are even booking straight cupping sessions!"

"As a massage therapist, I have found this course to be invaluable to my practice. It has totally transformed how I look at the body and work with my clients. The results from cupping (and Gua sha) are exceptional and clients look forward to having it incorporated in their sessions. Clients are even booking straight cupping sessions! Cupping is definitely a powerful tool for us manual practitioners, and it’s much easier on our bodies. I highly recommend taking this course and adding cupping to your practice. Thank you Leta & Jaye. I’m forever grateful for the knowledge you are sharing via this course!"

—Massage Therapist

"I LOVED this course! I feel like this is one of the best courses I've taken in a long time. Leta is very calm and easy to listen to. I have already begun using the moving cupping on a daily basis in my massage therapy sessions. I plan on using flash cupping with my own kids now that it is cough/cold season. After one cupping session, one client reported that she already feels so much better!!!"

- Massage Therapist

As a Thai Massage therapist and practitioner of other Thai bodywork, I'm always looking for new techniques to help my clients with energy flow as well as tension and pain. I absolutely loved this course and found Leta passionate and the information well organized and delivered. I'd recommend this course and am looking forward to the cupping course I've just enrolled in. Well done and a deep thank you!!

- Clara Pelica, RYT, Thai Massage Therapist and Massage Therapist

I really enjoyed the course, and I am looking forward to doing the cupping. The course has a nice format. I can always go back and review things. All my clients I have used it on are very pleased and keep asking for Gua Sha. One of my clients who used to get migraines every month, has not had one since we have done Gua Sha, and it has been 5 months.

- Massage Practitioner

"I enjoyed the videos and found them easy to follow and get me started with Cupping. Now that I have started to incorporate Cupping into my practice, I realize this has spiked my interest in Meridian Massage and other techniques that will only help me and my clients. I appreciate all the knowledge and thoroughly enjoy the Facebook page for the group; there is a lot of great information available by other practitioners."

- Kimberly Bolanowski, massage therapist

I am a massage therapist....I woke up one morning with my right shoulder frozen, but I had done nothing to it the day before. I also had 4 one-hour massages booked for that day. So I called one of the other massage therapists to come and Gua Sha my right shoulder for 30 minutes. As I got off the table, I noticed I had full range of motion back in my right shoulder. I even did all 4 of the massages without any pain or discomfort.

- Massage Practitioner

"I practiced on was a classmate who was starting to get sick. I did gua sha on his neck and upper back as well as on his elbow. He’s only experienced the style of gua sha that we learn in school, which is much more aggressive than what I’ve learned with you and he really enjoyed the difference! And, it was incredibly effective!! His cold ended up not progressing any further and within 2 days he was feeling back to normal!"
