Needling: Scientific research shows that acupuncture releases neurotransmitters such as endorphins, serotonin, and norepinepherine to stimulate the body's own healing ability to reduce pain, eliminate toxins and restore health.
Cupping: A therapy in which a glass cup is attached to the skin by creating a vacuum inside the cup. Cupping increases blood circulation to the area where the cups are placed. This may relieve muscle tension, which can improve overall blood flow and promote cell repair. It may also help form new connective tissues and create new blood vessels in the tissue. Cupping also is used for disorders ranging from arthritis, gastrointestinal disorders, vomiting, diarrhea, to lung disorders such as coughing and asthma.
Moxibustion: Moxibustion is a kind of external treatment; it is based on the theory of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), and it usually bakes acupoints with burning moxa wool.
