Both Cupping and Moxibustion can be used alone or in conjunction with an acupuncture treatment.
An ancient technique involving the use of glass cups. A vacuum is created inside the cup, which is then placed on the surface of the skin. This creates a suction effect, which in Chinese Medicine terminology, draws the stagnant Qi, blood and toxins in the underlying muscles to the surface of the body. It is often used in conjunction with an Acupuncture treatment.
A Traditional Chinese Medicine therapy which involves burning the Chinese herb “Ai Ye” over the surface of the skin on selected points, channels and areas of the body. Moxa comes in various forms and is often used as compressed pre-rolled sticks, or the loose herb can be shaped into small cones and placed directly onto skin, on top of a slice of ginger, or on the top of an acupuncture needle. In Chinese Medicine terminology, this deeply warms and nourishes the body, expels cold from the meridians, as well as increasing the flow of Qi (energy) and blood in the particular area.
