Moxibustion are unique methods of treating disease, which treat internal illness by external treatment. One first finds the pathogenesis, key factors, and nature of the disease to make sure which organs this disease belongs to according to TCM criteria. These methods can have significant effects on many diseases and disorders.

Cupping Therapy

Cupping therapy is an important part of non-drug therapy in TCM, with a history of thousands of years. Under the action of negative pressure, this therapy “dredges meridians,’ promotes blood circulation, remove blood stasis, detoxifies and oxygenates by mechanical effects of dragging and pressing. It is thought to have the ability to offer significant effects on systemic disease, respiratory system disease, circulation system disease, digestive system disease, and others.

Tui Na Massage

Tui Na massage is a treatment method, by which the physician applies his hands to the body surface, in proximity to the patients’ injuries using multiple techniques (pushing, holding, pressing, friction, rubbing, kneading, dotting and patting, in order to ‘dredge meridians’ and relieve pain.

Scraping (Gua Sha) therapy

Scraping (Gua Sha) therapy is guided by the theory of meridians and acu-points, and in-so-doing scrapes and rubs the body surface again and again using special instruments and methods. This therapy can adjust the contraction and tension of muscle, which may adjust the pressure between tissues and improve blood flow. This method has both practical and theoretical foundations for healing.

Hot herbal compress

Hot herbal compress is uncomplicated to use when wisely applied, to soothe and to relieve pain and inflammations. Important in the application are the selection of herbs with therapeutic qualities, such as ginger, turmeric, kaffir lime, camphor, tamarind and lemongrass. A mix of herbs is wrapped in a compress, then steamed and when hot, applied to the body by pressing, gliding or smearing in circular, linear and/or rolling movements.

Foot Massage

Foot Massage is in fact a combination of Massage and Reflexology and is about using massage to open up the energy channels, stimulate the flow of vital or life energy, and it incorporates pressing on so-called reflexology or acupressure points.

Head Massage

Head Massage is one of the most popular ayurvedic massages for stress and pain relief. It’s a massage of the head, neck and shoulders, applied also in more therapeutic conditions like, for instance, frozen shoulder, spondylosis, whiplash, and migraines, among other discomforts or illnesses.


is similar in practice to acupuncture (see below), only no needles are involved. Practitioners use their hands, elbows, or feet to apply pressure to specific points along the body’s “meridians.” According to the theory behind acupressure, meridians are channels that carry life energy (qi or ch’i) throughout the body. The reasoning holds that illness can occur when one of these meridians is blocked or out of balance; acupressure is thought to relieve blockages so energy can flow freely again, restoring wellness. More research is needed, but pilot studies have found positive results: Acupressure might decrease nausea for chemotherapy patients and reduce anxiety in people scheduled to have surgery.


Qigong originally is an ancient and powerful mind/body discipline that is perfect for the modern world.  Composed of a variety of sitting, standing and moving practices which use the breath, posture, and power of the mind, Qigong creates a field of powerful healing energy (qi), enabling the practitioner to shift into a state of increased vitality and awareness, a decrease or elimination of pain, and accelerated healing.  Studies show strong improvement in spiritual, physical and mental health, evidenced by synchronized brain waves, reduction in stress hormones, and increases in energy.

Tai Chi

Tai Chi is China’s unique gift to the arts of physical culture and fitness. A combination of self-defense and qigong, this elegant mind/body discipline is a moving energy meditation that is rooted in Taoist philosophy. Tao means “the way of nature” and Tai Chi is considered one of the best vehicles for practicing Tao as well as realizing it.

A graceful series of movements performed in slow motion, Tai Chi is easy on the joints and is a powerful stress reliever for contemporary lifestyles. Among other conditions, it addresses improper posture, muscle tension, and mental stress. These difficulties can restrict energy flow, causing blockages that can lead to pain and in some cases, serious illnesses.

The word, “chi” in the English transliteration is not the same as “qi/chi” or life force energy. In fact, the original word, “Taiji” means “the supreme ultimate”.  Add the word “chuan” and its meaning becomes “the supreme ultimate fist” (self-defense).
