Other therapies

Your practitioner may use other Chinese medical techniques in conjunction with acupuncture.

Nutrition and supplements

What we eat can have a big impact on our health, so Chinese nutritional advice may form part of your treatment plan. Your practitioner may also recommend taking certain dietary supplements or gentle herbal remedies.


During moxibustion, a herb is used to warm parts of the body or specific acupuncture points in order to trigger a particular response in the body.

Tui na

Tui na is a form of Chinese medical massage used when there is pain and stiffness. It can also be used to help other symptoms like certain digestions problems.

Cupping therapy

During cupping therapy, a glass cup is suctioned onto the skin to improve blood flow, free fascia, and trigger a healing response within the body.

Gua sha

During gua sha treatment, a blunt edge is press-stroked over the skin to increase blood supply to muscles and trigger the release of an enzyme that reduces inflammation and influences immunity.
