Auriculotherapy - A form of ear acupuncture based on the idea that the ear reflects the whole body. Especially good for pain.
Moxibustion - Technique of stimulating acupuncture points through heat - in Chinese medicine certain chronic illnesses like rheumatism are caused by damp and cold thus the symptoms being eased by the heat of the moxa, which is made of mugwort. I have turned several breech babies just by heating the mothers 5th toes with a moxa.
Tui Na- Massage offers stimulation of acupressure points which release tension, increases circulation, reduces pain and can improve general health.
Cupping - Creates a vacuum on the persons skin with glass cups to disperse blood and lymph stagnation thus improving the energy flow in the body. Good for respiratory, back, neck and shoulder problems.
