• Cupping ~~ The ultimate in muscle release, especially for tight muscles in the back. Gwyneth Paltrow made this famous on the red carpet when she showed her cupping marks.
• Moxa ~ a.k.a. moxibustion ~~ Warming and relaxing, like sitting by a hot fire. Great for your lower back. We simulate moxa with our TDP Far-infrared lamps, the jade mats, and the BioMat. Smokeless moxa is charcoaled and is less smokey than the raw mugwort moxa pole, while the raw mugwort is not treated and lights quicker. We sell both for home personal usage and can teach you how to use them.
• Gua sha (pronounced Gwa shah) ~~ Excellent for neck and shoulder tension. Breaks up adhesions.
These Chinese Medicine modalities can be included in or added onto any Acupuncture treatment. If you are interested, please discuss with Dr. Megan Marco when you come in for your appointment to see what modalities are applicable to your treatment goals.
