Treatment: Other modalities used: (moxabustion, cupping, tui na massage

As part of the treatment, I may also use an herb called Artemisia vulgaris (mugwort) commonly referred to as Moxa. Moxa is used to gently warm the acupuncture points and enhances the movement of the energy to flow. If needed I might perform cupping or Tui Na massage for acute or chronic issues. Cupping is used with sterilized glass cups that are put onto a patient's skin and either left on for a certain amount of time or moved around. Tui Na massage is a style of massage that helps the flow of "Qi" energy for many health issues.
