Some other treatment modalities that are often used in TCM and may be appropriate depending upon the individual are:

Chinese Herbal Therapy

TCM Dietary Therapy

Qi Gong (exercises both bodily and breathing/meditation)

Cupping: special suction cups applied to large areas such as the back. Most people think this feels wonderful; it generally leaves a round red mark afterward which is painless but can look dramatic (well-known athletes have made this treatment famous).

Tui Na: Chinese meridian massage; there is no deep-tissue or heavy pressure here – it is an energetic massage meant to address the channels under the skin where the Qi flows. Acupressure is derived from tai na.

Moxa therapy: gentle heating of particular points with the herb Ai Ye known for moving qi through its warmth.

Community Acupuncture
