What Are

Moxibustion & Cupping?


Moxibustion is a classic Chinese medicine treatment modality which involves the application of

heat. Applying heat to specific acupuncture points warms the body, increases blood flow and

nourishes the immune system. 



Cupping involves the application of suction using either glass or plastic cups. When the suction

is applied to the skin, it creates a reverse massage of sorts. Cupping helps separate the myofascia

from the muscle in order to release toxins and alleviate painful muscle adhesions. This modality

helps to increase blood circulation, relax tight muscles and reduce pain.
