The following additional therapies can be given as a stand-alone treatment or in complement of your acupuncture treatment.
It’s best to inquire with your practitioner about which treatment to consider in supplement to your acupuncture session.
Moxibustion is a form of heat therapy that involves burning the herb mugwort near specific points on the body to deeply penetrate and affect healing.
This treatment deeply warms, soothes and nourishes the body.
Gua Sha, which means to “scrape away inflammation”, is used to release stagnant blood and lymph from the muscle layer. This treatment helps alleviate neck and shoulder tension and tightness, sinus congestion, asthma, anxiety, and allergies.
Cupping is a very effective deep tissue therapy for releasing muscle tension, pain, and soreness. It helps clear blockages, improves circulation, stimulates and boosts internal organs, and has a detoxifying effect.
