Gua Sha

Gua Sha is a technique of scrapping the body to release trapped blood and emotions. It releases unhealthy elements from injured areas and stimulates blood flow and healing.

Modern research shows the petechia produce an anti inflammatory and immune protective effect that persists for days following a single Gua Sha treatment. Patients feel immediate relief from pain, stiffness, fever, chill, cough, wheeze, and nausea/vomiting. It is effective in acute and chronic internal organ disorders.

Cupping

Cupping is an ancient technique, used in many cultures, in which a special cup is applied to the skin and held in place by suction. The suction draws superficial tissue into the cup, which may either be left in place or moved along the body. Cupping brings fresh blood to the area and helps improve circulation. Traditional cupping, sometimes referred to as “fire cupping," uses heat to create a vacuum-like suction inside of glass cups. In modern times, cups that use a small pump to create suction have also been introduced.

Cupping is used in areas of stagnation or when we want to move something out of the body as in a cold. Although it has become popular with athletes, we only use cupping when it is warranted.    

Moxibustion

Moxibustion involves the heating of acupuncture points with smoldering mugwort herb (known as moxa). Moxibustion stimulates circulation, counteracts cold and dampness in the body, and promotes the smooth flow of blood and qi. This safe, non-invasive technique may be used alone, but it is generally used in conjunction with acupuncture treatment.
