A Holistic Acupuncture Practice and Wellness Center in the Sarasota/Bradenton Area


Moxibustion, Cupping, Guasha

MOXIBUSTION:

Dried leaves of the mugwort plant, artemesia, in various forms are burned and held over certain areas of the body to warm and stimulate Qi or energy. This method can be especially effective in treating not only stress, but arthritis, asthma, IBS, aiding digestion, and increasing the body’s overall energy!

CUPPING:

A therapy designed to stimulate the flow of blood and Qi within the superficial muscle layers. It is used for sore muscles, tension, neck/back pain, and the common cold. This is performed by placing small glass cups on specific areas of your body. A vacuum is created under the cup using heat or suction. The cups may be moved over an area of the body or left in place. This may leave the treated area with mild bruising. The discoloration is a sign of healing and will dissipate in a few days.

GUASHA:

A technique used to release muscle tension, tightness, and constriction. A specialized tool is used to gently scrape or rub the skin over a problem area. Guasha feels a bit like a deep massage. This too may leave some slight bruising on and around the treated area and will dissipate within a few days.
