• Cupping • Cupping is an ancient form of promoting blood and qi circulation to a specific area. The practitioner creates suction in a cup and then applies that cup to the body, which then draws the skin into the cup. This therapy is warming and causes a local increase in the flow of Qi and blood through the meridians. • Gua Sha • Gua Sha means to “scrape or extract sand or toxins.” Gua Sha involves scraping skin in strokes, by a round-edged instrument, which results in the appearance of small red petechiae called “sha.” The surfacing of sha is literally removing disease from deep within the system. The redness will fade in 2 to 3 days. • Tui Na • Tui Na translates as “push grasp”, and is considered Chinese Medical Massage. Tui Na is a massage technique that moves Qi in various parts of the body. It is generally used to relieve muscle pain, tension and inflammation. • Moxibustion • Moxibustion is a TCM therapy that incorporates Artemisia in acupuncture treatments. It may be burned on the handle of the needle, above the skin, on salt or on a slice of ginger or other herbs. This is used to “warm” acupuncture points or areas in order to accelerate the healing process.
