MOXIBUSTION & CUPPING

MOXIBUSTION

The heat from burning prepared mugwort (“moxa”) has a special ability to warm and strengthen the body’s energy as well as increasing circulation and opening obstructions.



CUPPING

Heating round, glass jars just before being applied to the skin creates a vacuum that draws the skin slightly up into the cup. This suction increases circulation, breaks adhesions, and draws out toxins, allowing for free flow in the channels.
