Cupping and Moxibustion

In addition to acupuncture therapy, there are cupping and moxibustion therapy in Oriental treatment.

 

Cupping therapy is an ancient Chinese form of alternative medicine in which a local suction is created on the skin; practitioners believe this mobilizes blood flow in order to promote healing. Suction is created using heat (fire) or mechanical devices (hand or electrical pumps). written by Wikipedia

 

Moxibustion is a traditional Chinese medicine therapy using moxa made from dried mugwort (Artemisia argyi). Moxibustion is ineffective in preventing or treating cancer or any other disease, but plays an important role in the traditional medical systems of China (including Tibet), JapanKoreaVietnam, andMongolia. Suppliers usually age the mugwort and grind it up to a fluff; practitioners burn the fluff or process it further into a cigar-shaped stick. They can use it indirectly, with acupuncture needles, or burn it on the patient’s skin. written by Wikipedia
