Acupuncture: With acupuncture delicate, sterile needles are gently inserted along meridians at specific sites on the body to unblock the obstruction of and re-establish the flow of energy or Qi. You feel better because your Qi is moving through the meridians with greater ease and harmony in your body.
Tui na/Acupressure: Tui Na, a traditional Asian massage technique, treats the meridians and myofascial acupressure points of the body with touch or gentle pressure often in conjunction with acupuncture. Myofascial release assists to increase the flow of energy through the meridians and is a wonderful and pleasant addition to acupuncture!
Cupping Therapy: Cupping is a site-specific technique using small glass cups that when placed on the skin create a suction that gently draws the tissue up and away from underlying structures. This action increases blood flow to the area, decreases muscle tension and fascial restrictions and overall mobilizes tissue. The result is an increase of range of motion to the area, a decrease in overall pain, an increase in relaxation and enhanced healing.
Moxibustion: Moxibustion is a traditional Chinese medicine warming technique that uses indirect heat at both acupuncture and acupressure sites on the body. This heat created by burning Mugwort assists in physically and energetically warming the body. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3789413
