1. Acupuncture and Moxibustion
Acupuncture and Moxibustion are two signature therapies of TCM. Acupuncture stimulates your Chi by applying pressure on select pressure points of the body using extremely fine needles. Moxibustion uses therapeutic mugwarts. Practitioners burn mugwarts close to the skin, and use the aroma and stimulation from the heat to treat various ailments.
2. Cupping Therapy
Cupping Therapy is another iconic TCM physical therapy, where heated cups are used to create suction on the skin. This suction intentionally ruptures capillaries on the surface of the skin, which jump-starts the body’s repair mechanisms, removing dead cells, increasing blood and Chi circulation, improving moods, boosting immunity, and bringing the body back to balance.
3. Gua Sha
This TCM therapy uses a hard tool (usually made from buffalo horn, jade, or metal) to scrape the surface of the skin. The resulting stimulation increases the circulation of Chi, removes stagnation in one’s circulation, and boosts immunity. Gua Sha is traditionally used for patients suffering from high blood pressure, heat strokes, and sore muscles.
4. Tuina Massage
In TCM, massage is applied on pressure points of the body using various specified techniques that accelerate or slow down the flow of chi. In addition to being highly enjoyable, these massages can also help rebalance the body, increase body awareness, and decrease chronic pain.
