The therapist can also use ''air cupping'', instead of using a flame to heat the cup, this one is applied to the skin and a suction pump is attached to the rounded end of the jar.
Cupping is used for children and adults, primarily to treat respiratory conditions such as bronchitis, asthma and congestion.
Loosen stiff muscles, encourage blood flow, relieve back and neck pain, headaches, anxiety, fatigue, rheumatism, relax the nervous system.
In some cases Guasha will be used to complement the cupping
- Moxibustion (Moxa)
Moxa is a form of "fire heat" treatment that stimulates specific acupuncture points of the body.
The term is derived from the Japanese "mogusa" meaning herb (mugwort) and the Latin "bustion" meaning burning.
In indirect moxibustion, the therapist lights one end of a moxa stick (roughly the shape and size of a cigar) and holds it one inch or two away from the skin to bring mild warmth to the area without burning.
The intensity of the heat is adjusted according to the patient's condition and comfort.
In addition to increasing the local blood flow, moxa is extremely comforting and can create a deep relaxation response.
Eliminates cold and dampness, stimulates the immune system.
