Bellabaci International, a South African natural wellness company and originator of the Bellabaci Body and Face Massage Systems, is pleased to announce its first Bellabaci training seminar in the U.S.

Newtown, Pennsylvania (PRWEB). Over the past 18 months Bellabaci has seen exponential growth in the U.S. and worldwide, and the Bellabaci Body Massage System is proving to be the easy natural treatment choice for removing unwanted cellulite and holistic therapy treatment methods for headache, migraine and fibromyalgia pain relief. Bellabaci is based on ancient Chinese cupping therapy and Hajima natural healing modalities, still practiced by millions of people daily in the East.

“This is an exciting and very important development for us,” said Keren Trabelsi, CEO of Bellabaci International. “We envision the Bellabaci Cupping Therapy Massage Techniques being offered in all massage therapy schools in the USA as part of their professional therapist massage curriculum and certification. The benefits to the practitioner and client are well documented and a career minded professional therapist should consider our treatment techniques as an alternative and integral service to the usual offerings for their clients.”

The company’s first Bellabaci training will be led by Carrie Ann Wiedeman and Pat Mayrhofer. The training seminar will be held at Bucks County LaSalle University Campus in Newtown, Pennsylvania, on Feb. 23 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Six national continuing education units toward professional accreditation will be earned by participants.
