  1. Bullet  Acupressure

Acupressure is the application of gentle but firm pressure to the acupuncture points on the body. Acupressure works with acupuncture and the other modalities of traditional chinese medicine to restore balance and health to the body. It can also be an effective alternative to acupuncture treatment when acupuncture is not possible or appropriate, or for the rare person who cannot tolerate acupuncture needles. Acupressure techniques are frequently taught and recommended for self-treatment between acupuncture appointments to reinforce the effects of acupuncture treatment.


  1. Bullet Moxibustion

Moxibustion is the use of the herb mugwort (artemsia vulgaris), called moxa in Chinese, to apply heat directly or indirectly to the body in order to warm body regions and acupuncture points, stimulate circulation, encourage a smooth flow of blood and qi, and protect against cold and dampness.


Moxibustion is particularly effective in the treatment of chronic problems, "deficient conditions" (weakness), and in the treatment of the elderly. Moxa has proven to be clinically effective for treatment of common ailments such as acute and chronic pain, digestive disorders, women's disorders, and sexual dysfunction.
