Methods

 
Acupuncture isn’t just about needles. There are also other methods of treatment and associated therapies such as:

  • Tuina – massage focused on the meridians’ energy flow around the body and acupuncture points.
  • Moxa – the use of medicinal herbs heated to add heat to acupuncture points.
  • Heat lamp – may be used to warm general areas.
  • Cupping ImageCupping – the use of glass and plastic round cups to provide suction to activate the acupuncture points and meridians of energy flow.

    Can sometimes leave a round pink to purple mark on the skin. This is normal and will show different colour depending on what is already happening under the skin. For example; redness can indicate a heated condition and a more purple mark will show in an older injury where the blood has stopped moving well in the area.
  • Herbs – herbal teas or capsules made of herbs may be prescribed.
  • Qi Gong – Exercises may be give if appropriate.
  • TCM diet – advice may be given
  • Electro-acupuncture – may be applied if a condition persists and is not responding to Acupuncture. We will assess this
  • Tuning Forks  – This very gentle energy wave through sound can be applied at different acupuncture points
  • Gua ShaGua-sha – uses a tool to provide friction to the skin layer.
