Cupping is a technique used in Chinese medicine to stimulate acupoints or larger areas of the body. The cups create a suction on the skin. Cupping improves the blood and qi flow in the areas being treated by keeping the cups static or by moving them on the skin surface.
Moxibustion refers to the burning of moxa, prepared from mugwort leaves. It is most commonly used in addition to Acupuncture.
Moxa is placed either directly on the skin or held just above it, over specific acupoints or meridians. The herb is lit and heat permeates the skin and affects the blood flow and the flow of qi energy in the area being treated.
Some examples of uses is: Immune system strengthening, chronic low energy, chronic fatigue, cold hands/feet.
