Cupping

Cupping TherapyCupping is an ancient technique, used in many cultures, in which a special cup is applied to the skin and held in place by suction. The suction draws superficial tissue into the cup, which may either be left in place or moved along the body. Cupping brings fresh blood to the area and helps improve circulation,lengthen shortened muscle tissue and reduce adhesions of tissue at sites of trauma or over-use. Traditional cupping, sometimes referred to as “fire cupping," uses heat to create a vacuum-like suction inside of glass cups. Cupping often leaves reddish marks on the skin that fade within 1-3 days.

Moxibustion

Other Therapies - Marana Acupuncture in Tucson, ArizonaMoxibustion involves the heating of acupuncture points with smoldering mugwort herb (known as moxa). Moxibustion stimulates circulation, counteracts cold and dampness in the body, and promotes the smooth flow of blood and qi. It is very effective at increasing the efficacy of the needles in certain types of treatments. This safe, non-invasive technique may be used alone, but it is generally used in conjunction with acupuncture treatment.

Qigong

Qigong means "life energy cultivation" and is traditionally seen as a method to cultivate and balance qi. The practice involves rhythmic movement, focused breathing, and concentrated awareness. Qigong is a safe and gentle meditative exercise that promotes healing of the mind and body.

Meditation

Meditation--literally, the act of paying attention--is very effective at:

  • Reducing Stress
  • Controlling Anxiety
  • Enhancing Self-awareness
  • Lengthening Attention Span
  • Promotes Kindness and Compassion for self and others

I teach both mindfulness and compassion-focused meditation techniques to enhance the body/mind ability to self-heal. Offered to individuals and small groups, meditation is often a helpful modality when dealing with chronic health care issues and/or pain.
