Chinese Medicine

Other Modalities

Tui Na

Tui Na is a Chinese medical massage developed as another branch of classical Chinese medicine.  This therapy is used to stimulate or relax muscle groups, channels of the body, and relieve pain.


A moxa stick is a tightly rolled stick of the herb Mugwort (Folium Artemisiae Argyi), known as Ai Ye, in Chinese. It is burned and held near the acupuncture points.  Moxa is used to warm and penetrate the meridians and acupuncture points, to enhance the effect of the acupuncture treatment.  Moxibustion is very safe and effective.  It feels very pleasant.  Moxibustion can be helpful in treating conditions of internal cold, chronic pain, and in other circumstances.



Cupping is a technique that uses suction to relieve qi and blood stagnation.  A vacuum is created between a glass cup and the skin using either a pump or heat.  This process brings blood and qi to the superficial layers of the skin and fascia, promoting circulation and free flow.  Once the cups are removed, patients will often find reddish circles where the cups were placed, which typically fades in a few days.  Cupping is helpful in treating musculo-skeletal pain, respiratory, and digestive complaints.




This is electrical stimulation of the acupuncture points by connecting very low levels of electricity to the needles, which are used as a transmitter or conductor.  Electrical stimulation through the needles opens energy conducting pathways throughout the body.  It is a very safe, effective, and comfortable treatment for many conditions, especially benefiting chronic and intractable pain conditions.


Shonishin Pediatric Acupuncture

A specialized form of treatment for infants and children. It focuses on gentle, specialized, mostly non-inserted treatment techniques that children find comfortable and even pleasurable. Dramatic results can be obtained even with very light treatment.

Shonishin techniques involve rhythmic stroking, rubbing, tapping, and pressing the skin to give different kinds of gentle stimulation. These techniques harmonize and fortify the child’s vital energy, and strengthen the child’s constitution.
