Moxibustion is a form of heat therapy.We use dried herb plant (Artemesia vulgaria) called "moxa" are burned very near the surface of the skin where trigger points and meridian points that are located in the body. The intention is to warm and invigorate the flow of Qi/Chi in the body and dispel certain pathogenic influences.
Moxibustion Therapy can be used to help pregnant women with breech babies. Moxibustion stimulates heat receptors on the skin of the toe. The heat encourages the release of two pregnancy hormones—placental estrogen and prostaglandins—which lead to uterine contractions. These contractions can then stimulate the baby to move.
Cupping & Scraping Therapy
Cupping is one of the best deep-tissue therapies available. It is thought to affect tissues up to four inches deep from the external skin. Cupping and Scraping therapy are great ways to remove toxins from your body and stimulate the flow of fresh blood, lymph, and Qi/Chi to the affected area and throughout the body. It often works wonders for patients with the flu, colds, coughs, back and muscle pain.
Cupping follows the lines of the meridians. There are five meridian lines on the back, and these are where the cups are usually placed. By targeting the meridian channels, cupping strives to ‘open’ these channels – the paths through which life energy flows freely throughout the body, through all tissues and organs, thus providing a smoother and more free-flowing Qi (life force).
