There are several other therapies that are used in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Tuina and Shiatsu are Chinese and Japanese therapeutic massage. They are often known by the term acupressure in America today. Cupping is a suction therapy that mobilizes qi and blood flow in the superficial muscle layers. Sessions are offered that combine Tuina/Shiatsu with cupping that don’t even use any needles. Moxibustion is a therapy that uses an herb called mugwort. It is used to warm acupuncture points and aid in the healing process. It adds an extra energetic component to therapies that can enhance recovery and rejuvenate the body.
