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.
