  • Acupuncture  - Needling involves the insertion of very fine needles into the body through the surface of the skin.  This is generally a painless procedure and leads to deep levels of relaxation experienced during the treatment. 

  • Cupping  - A technique that uses warm glass cups on the skin to create a type of suction.  These cups are used to remove stagnation from an area of the body.

  • Gua sha - TCM procedure that involves gentle massage-like scraping of an area of the body with a spoon or jade stone to alleviates the stagnation of Qi (pronounced Chee) and blood deep within the tissue.

  • Moxibustion is the process of burning the herb Artemesia Vulgaris (aka Mugwort) to either warm an area of the body or to warm an Acupuncture point.  This technique increases circulation locally and warms/tonifies the body.
