Cupping

Cupping is an ancient technique, used in many cultures, in which a special cup is applied to the skin and held in place by suction. The suction draws superficial tissue into the cup, which may either be left in place or moved along the body. Cupping brings fresh blood to the area and helps improve circulation. Traditional cupping, sometimes referred to as “fire cupping," uses heat to create a vacuum-like suction inside of glass cups. In modern times, cups that use a small pump to create suction have also been introduced.

Qigong

Qigong means "life energy cultivation" and is traditionally seen as a method to cultivate and balance qi. The practice involves rhythmic movement, focused breathing, and concentrated awareness. Qigong is a safe and gentle meditative exercise that promotes healing of the mind and body.

Tui Na, Teishin & Gua Sha

Tui na means "pushing grasping," and is a powerful form of Chinese medical bodywork. Tui na is particularly effective for conditions involving muscles, tendons and joints, such as structural misalignment, orthopedic problems and sports injuries.

A teishin is a Japanese non-insertion tool used to stimulate acupuncture points and unwind fascial distortions.

Gua Sha uses smooth edged tools to gently scrape areas of lubricated skin, drawing stagnant blood up from the underlying tissue and stimulating healthy blood flow.
