• Cupping

    Cupping involves the use of glass cups used to release sore muscles and can be a great way to treat a cold in its early stage.  The action of suction helps to bring blood and oxygen into the area which enhances healing.  A deep redness or bruise like mark often appears where the cups have been applied.  

    Moxibustion

    Moxibustion involves the burning of an ancient Chinese medicinal herb called Ai Ye or moxa (dried mugwort) at certain acupuncture points on the body.  This technique is very nourishing and warming, helping to invigorate circulation to facilitate healing.  Moxibustion has been used for centuries and is particularly effective to relieve pain, such as arthritis, that is sensitive or aggravated by the cold.
