In addition to the primary treatment methods, there are several therapeutic tools that can be used to enhance the healing process.
Cupping is known to move stagnant Qi and blood, regulate and invigorate the flow of Qi and blood, and release muscle tension. During a cupping session, cups are placed on the skin and a vacuum is created, drawing the skin and underlying tissue into the cup. This suction is believed to stimulate circulation and promote healing. Cupping can leave circular bruises on the skin, which typically fade within a few days.
From Leslie: One of the benefits of moxa is that it can be easily incorporated into a patient's self care routine, providing them with a sense of accountability and empowerment in their healing process as they take an active role in their own health and well-being.
