Moxibustion is an ancient technique that has profound effects on your body’s physiology and circulation. It is a method that incorporates burning the Ancient Chinese herb mugwort, and applying the heat therapeutically to acupuncture points and areas where pain manifests.
Spooning (Gua – Sha)
Spooning is a great therapy to enhance circulation and to release stagnation in your body. A therapeutic Chinese tool or spoon is utilised to scrape the skin, to allow for the release of stiffness, tension and pain. Spooning can also help to ward off flu, colds, as well as treating stiffness and pain.
Reflexology is massage specifically for the feet that looks to promote wellness throughout the entire body. Modern reflexology is based upon the principle that the foot has ‘reflex’ points that correspond to the body’s meridians, structures and organs. Reflexology can produce highly therapeutic results over a range of treatments.
Cupping is similar to a massage therapy session as it looks to increase circulation and to treat deeply held muscular pain and tension. It uses special glass cups to bring about gentle suction against your skin, which will stimulate circulation in the body and can even help to rid the body of coughs and colds.
