Moxibustion

Moxibustion is a pain free non invasive treatment, often used to complement an acupuncture treatment. Treatment involves the burning of the herb mugwort at the specific locations on the body to produce pleasant warmth that deeply penetrates the skin.

Moxa has numerous applications. Some examples of conditions which may receive moxibustion include:

  • Breach Presentation
  • Menstrual Pain (Dysmenorrhoea)
  • Musculoskeletal Pain
  • Miscarriage Prevention

Cupping

Cupping involves placing special suction jars at specific points on the body. A vacuum is created by removing all the oxygen from within the jar before placing it on the point. This creates a suction affect which stimulates the flow of blood, lymph and Qi within the body.

Cupping is often used for:

  • Muscular Skeletal Pain
  • Colds and Flu
  • Removing toxins from the body

Cupping at first will feel unusual, but is generally a pleasant experience. After treatment there may be a temporary discoloration to the skin of the areas treated.
