Burning moxaMoxibustion(艾灸): Acupuncture is often accompanied by moxibustion – which involves burning mugwort on or near the skin at an acupuncture point.

In electroacupuncture, an electrical current is applied to the needles once they are inserted, in order to further stimulate the respective acupuncture points.

acupressure-treatmentAcupressure(指压): Finger pressure on acupuncture points without the use of needles. This is an adjunct to acupuncture-moxibustion. It releases blockages and relaxes body tissues. A beautiful de-stress tool.

cuppingCupping(拔罐): Cupping is a type of Chinese treatments, consisting of placing several glass “cups” (open spheres) on the body. A match is lit and placed inside the cup and then removed before placing the cup against the skin. As the air in the cup is heated, it expands, and after placing in the skin, cools, creating lower pressure inside the cup that allows the cup to stick to the skin via suction.
