Gua Sha- A healing technique of Traditional Chinese Medicine, gua sha dates back to the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). It commonly involves using an instrument with a smooth edge to press-stroke or scrape lubricated skin in one direction for the purpose of increasing circulation and releasing stagnant blood and toxins. Most people use gua sha as a treatment for common conditions such as a cold, flu, headache, asthma, bronchitis and both chronic and acute pain. It’s also used to stimulate the immune system, detoxify the body and release fevers as the scraping brings excess heat and toxins to the surface of the skin
Moxibustion- Moxa is a method of heating specific acupuncture points on the body by burning an herb material close to the skin. This technique can be used alone or in combination with acupuncture – the Chinese character for acupuncture literally means “acupuncture-moxibustion.” Moxa is superior treatment for blood stagnation (headache, back pain, painful menses, infertility), deficient Qi (fatigue, spontaneous sweating, feelings of cold), and warming the channels (digestive disturbances like IBS, arthritis, and immune function).
