Known as Chinese medical massage (acupressure) following the Traditional Chinese Medicine theories. It is known as "push, pull and grasp" using my hands, fingers, and elbow pressure along the meridians and points as acupuncture does. Focusing on specific ailments, rather than a more generalized massage methods. 

A technique that uses glass cups that simply place suction on the skin.Cupping is much like the inverse of massage rather than applying pressure to muscles, it uses gentle pressure to pull the muscles upward increasing blood circulation, and promoting relaxation.Bruising should be expected, but skin should return to looking normal within a few days.

Is a form of heat treatment therapy using a herb "Moxa" (Artemisia Vulgaris, aka Mugwort) that is burned. It stimulates the flow of qi, and relaxes muscles when it is placed on specific acupuncture points on the body. There is a small inconvenience with moxibustion is the "smoke and odor" unfortunately, the true moxa herb smell is similar to marijuana. I also have a smokeless variety as well (with less to little scent). 

Is a scraping technique in a Chinese medicine that stimulates blood flow, and promotes healing using a tool or spoon and scraping the back, neck, feet repetitively. In Traditional Chinese medicine gua sha moves the toxins out, producing an anti-inflammatory and immune response. Breaking down the fascia restriction you will have red marks for a few days and the marks may look painful but they really are not.
