Cupping and moxabustion are TCM treatments that are often used together for greater effect. Both use heat to stimulate circulation in order to break up stagnant areas of blood and qi (energy). Their use in TCM dates back over 2000 years.
Uses cups of various sizes with a suction bulb attached to them to enhance blood flow and generate qi movement in the body. Cups can be removed from the skin after a few seconds and replaced or left in position for longer time. Cups can also be placed on oiled skin and moved around to stimulate blood flow.
Uses the herb Moxa, a mugwort herb, to enhance blood flow. It helps to tone the patient’s qi (energy) and remove cold, dampness, and stagnation in the body.
