Moxibustion

Moxibustion 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. This safe, non-invasive technique may be used alone, but it is generally used in conjunction with acupuncture treatment. Moxibustion may be included in the acupuncture treatment or may be stand-alone therapy. For moxibustion with acupuncture there is no additional fee, for moxibustion alone the fee is $50.00

Cupping

Cupping 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. Traditional cupping, sometimes referred to as “fire cupping," uses heat to create a vacuum-like suction inside of glass cups. In modern times, cups that use a small pump to create suction have also been introduced. Cupping may be part of an acupuncture treatment or stand alone therapy. For cupping with acupuncture there is no extra fee. For cupping alone, the fee is $50.00

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. Dr. Cherry may prescribe specific qi gong movements for you to do on your own, or he may perform medical qi gong on you while you rest on the table. Both incorporate the strength of your own body's healing Qi.

 

Tui Na
Tui na means "pushing grasping," and is a powerful form of Chinese medical bodywork. Based on the same Oriental medical principles as acupuncture, tui na seeks to improve the flow of qi through the meridian channels. Tui na is particularly effective for conditions involving muscles, tendons and joints, such as structural misalignment, orthopedic problems and sports injuries. It can also be used to treat internal diseases. Tui na is generally incorporated into an acupuncture treatment, so there is no additional cost for it.
