Additional Oriental Medicine Techniques

 

 

Moxibustion is an ancient and deeply nourishing healing technique that consists of burning a Chinese botanical (Artemisia Vulgaris) over or on acupuncture points to improve circulation and warm the body.

Cupping is also a very old treatment method that was used by doctors in the U.S. up until the early 1900’s. It is essentially a suction technique that moves stagnant energy and blood resulting in improved circulation in the affected area.

Tui Na is a form of therapeutic massage that emphasizes manipulation of the soft tissue and alignment of the musculoskeletal system to balance the body within the framework of Oriental Medicine theory. It also includes the use of external herbal poultices, compresses, liniments, and salves to enhance the therapeutic effect.
