TCM acupuncture is the most common form of acupuncture in the United States and has more of a physiologic and physical emphasis in comparison to Five Element Acupuncture which addresses the emotional, psychological, and spiritual dimension underlying disease.

Moxibustion
Moxibustion (moxa) is the method of applying heat to points or certain locations of the body. The bitter and acrid herb mugwort (Atemesia vulgaris) is heated on the skin or acupuncture needle. The qualities of the herb and heat travel through the meridians and penetrate the muscles. Moxa has been shown to have a positive effect on immunity by increasing circulation and white blood cells.

Cupping
Cupping is a therapy that’s been used for thousands of years. A vacuum is created in a glass or plastic cup and applied to the skin to create suction. Cupping has the function of warming and promoting the free flow of Qi and Blood in the meridians, dispelling Cold Dampness, and decreasing swelling and pain.

Gua Sha
Gua Sha is a common technique practiced in homes as well as clinics and hospitals throughout Asia. A round-edged instrument is stroked along the skin removing congestion and promoting normal circulation and metabolic processes. It is used often to treat pain, upper respiratory disorders and chronic disorders related to toxicity.
