Freedom Chinese Medicine - Oriental Therapies

Oriental Therapies

Oriental Therapies are therapies such as cupping & moxibustion that have been used for millennia to stimulate the body to heal itself.  They are often used to enhance the effectiveness of an Acupuncture treatment, but can also be used on their own.

Check out the four therapies we offer at our clinic


Cupping is where glass cups are applied to the skin. I use fire to remove the oxygen from the inside of the cup, this creates a vacuum so that when the cup is placed on the skin suction occurs. This suction separates the layers of skin and muscle and allowing blood and oxygen to flow. The space created by the suction also allows toxins to be pulled out and brought to the surface where the lymphatic system (the circulating body fluid that assists our immune system) can remove them.

Gua Sha


Moxibustion refers to the burning of a herb (Moxi/ Moxa/ Mugwort) near the skin to stimulate specific acupuncture points.

Ear Candling

Ear Candling is a gentle therapy often used in an attempt for clearing a build-up of ear wax or fluid.
