What is Moxibustion (Moxa)?
Moxibustion is a technique sometimes used in Acupuncture treatments. It consists of burning dried mugwort (a herb) on points of the body.
The heat of moxibustion soothes tensions and gives better circulation to the injured area by defusing the stagnated blood and inflammatory substances.
Moxibustion can treat areas affected by direct trauma which present with bruising, surgery scarring (acute & chronic), as well as scar tissue adhesions.

What is Tui Na Massage?
The philosophy and principles of Tui na massage are based on traditional Chinese medicine, which focuses on emotional and physical components of a person’s well-being, as well as aspects such as climate, relationships, and diet.
The underlying philosophy of Tui na massage is that true health is achieved when one has found harmony and balance inside the self and their environment.
The goal of Tui na massage is to create harmony in the yin and yang of the body by getting rid of blockages and disturbances that manifest as illness, disease, and emotional issues.
Similar to acupuncture, Tui na massage uses the same energetic meridians and acu-points to balance the Qi and blood in your body, leading to better health. Qi that’s flowing incorrectly can cause blockages, such as poor blood circulation in the affected area.
The main therapeutic goal of tuina massage is to remove the energetic blocks that are causing qi stagnation.

What is Anma Shiatsu Massage?
Shiatsu, similar to acupressure, uses finger pressure, manipulations and stretches, along Traditional Chinese Medicine meridians.
Shiatsu originated indirectly from acupuncture, the ancient Chinese healing art, from which principles were applied in the traditional form of Japanese massage called Anma.
Shiatsu can be done through the clothes or on bare skin and uses static pressure, which can vary from light holding to deep physical pressure applied with the palm of the hand or thumb.
People can receive shiatsu for relaxation or to help them with specific conditions. In particular, shiatsu can help alleviate insomnia, anxiety, depression, headaches, muscular tension, digestive tract issues, and sinus congestion. In some cases it can also help increase local circulation and the movement of lymph.

What is Cupping?
Cupping therapy is an ancient technique of healing. Cupping is performed by applying cups to selected skin points and creating a subatmospheric pressure, either by heat or by suction.
It is believed the suction helps facilitate the flow of “qi” in the body. Many believe that cupping helps balance yin and yang, or the negative and positive, within the body. Restoring balance between these two extremes is thought to help with the body’s resistance to pathogens as well as its ability to increase blood flow and reduce pain.
Cupping increases blood circulation to the area where the cups are placed. This may relieve muscle tension, which can improve overall blood flow and promote cell repair. It may also help form new connective tissues and create new blood vessels in the tissue.

What is Electroacupuncture?
Electroacupuncture is a type of acupuncture that uses electrical stimulation to enhance its effects. The electrical stimulation can help with pain relief, reducing inflammation, and promote the body's natural healing response.
Electroacupuncture is commonly used to treat various conditions such as musculoskeletal pain, neurological disorders, digestive issues, and emotional imbalances, etc.
