Acupuncture 針灸

Originated over 2,500 years ago, acupuncture is a treatment based on Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). The core of TCM is the concept that a type of life energy, known as “Qi氣” flows through energy pathways (meridians) in the body. The practice of acupuncture procedure involves the insertion of very thin, hair-like needles into specific points of the body to manipulate the flow of Qi and to improve circulation.

Cupping 拔罐

Cupping therapy involves creating suction on the skin using mostly glasses or plastic cups. Negative pressure or a vacuum is created inside the cup either by applying a flame to the cup to remove oxygen before placing it on the skin or by attaching a suction device to the cup after it is placed on the skin.

This vacuum causes your skin to rise and redden as the blood vessels expand. You might see some red, purple, or light color changes around the cupping area afterwards. The color of the marks depends on your body condition and can last 2-5 days. You might feel mild soreness at the local area sometimes. The above changes are all common and normal after the therapy. 
Cupping therapy is believed to correct the imbalances in energy within the body by restoring the flow of “Qi 氣”. It helps mobilizes blood flow and promote healing and detox.

Moxibustion (Moxa)艾灸

Moxisbustion is a technique that involves the burning of mugwort, which is a cone or stick made of Mugwort, which is a type of Chinese herb. Moxa can strengthen and stimulate the flow of qi (energy) and blood. It can be used directly on acupuncture points or indirectly near the area. 
Moxa expels cold and warms the blood. Therefore, it is particularly effective on people with chronic conditions that are commonly associated with the “cold” pattern and stubborn pain.

  • Irregular menstruation
