Oriental moxibustion and cupping techniques

Oriental medicine techniques used for pain relief. In moxibustion, the herb “mugwort,” or moxa is used. This herbal medicine is ground and burned, and applied at acupuncture points. This Oriental medicine is intended to warm these regions and to stimulate better circulation of Chi (life force.)

Cupping, in Oriental medicine, is a therapy whereby a cup (or cups) is applied to the skin as a vacuum. For instance, heat or flames are often briefly applied to the inside of the cup(s) and quickly placed upon the skin. This creates a vacuum-like suction upon the skin. Oriental medicine practitioner may slide the cup from one acu-point to another to promote healing and pain relief.
