Tui Na & Acupressure

Tui na means "pushing grasping," and is a powerful form of Chinese medical massage which is performed with the patient clothed. Based on the same principles as acupuncture, tui na seeks to improve circulation. Tui na is particularly effective for conditions involving muscles, tendons, and joints, such as structural misalignment, orthopedic problems, and sports injuries. It can also be used to treat some internal conditions.

Acupressure, the application of physical pressure at acupuncture points, is incorporated into the session.

Qigong & Corrective Exercise

Qi Gong exercises coordinate movement, breath, and awareness.  Based on your health concern, exercises may be selected for you that will best support your treatment and wellness goals. The movements are designed to support the execution of everyday movements with a balance of strength and ease. 


Moxibustion involves the heating of acupuncture points with smoldering mugwort herb (known as moxa). Moxibustion stimulates circulation, counteracts cold and dampness in the body, and promotes circulation. This safe, non-invasive technique may be used alone, but it is generally used in conjunction with acupuncture treatment.


Cupping is an ancient technique, used in many cultures, in which a specialized 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 are also used.

Gua Sha

Gua Sha is a traditional technique commonly used in Asia by which the skin is pressed in strokes with a round-edged instrument. It causes a four-fold increase in microcirculation of surface tissue, relieving pain and tension. It can reduce inflammation and stimulate the immune system. Sha, small petechiae, results from the pressure. These marks should fade in 2-7 days.
