Acupunctureis an ancient Chinese medical system using sterile, hair-thin needles to stimulate nerves and improve circulation of blood and qi (or energy, pronounced chee) in order to alleviate pain or improve health.
Cupping:the use of suction along meridians or sore muscles. Cupping strongly increases blood flow to the area treated. Helpful for treating lung congestion. Cupping can be stationary or sliding. This is not painful, but can leave circular red areas or bruises.
Moxa or Moxabustion: warming of acupuncture points or meridians with smoldering herbs. Traditionally used to turn a malpositioned fetus.
Only Licensed Acupuncturists are well trained in the safe and effective use of acupuncture. If someone says they are performing trigger point needling or dry needling, they have little or no training in acupuncture and pose a risk to the public.
