Acupuncture involves the insertion of thin needles into "acupuncture points" on the body by trained practitioners. According to acupunctural teachings, this will restore health and well-being and is particularly good at treating pain.
Moxibustion is a healing practice in which a Chinese herb (mugwort) is burned above the skin to warm and stimulate an acupuncture point or affected area. It is most often used to expel cold and warm the meridians, bringing the body into balance and ensuring a consistent Qi and blood flow.

Herbs are an essential element of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Along with other components of Traditional Chinese Medicine, these are based on Yin and Yang and Five Elements (Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water). Herbal medicine refers to using a plant's leaves, roots, flowers, seeds, berries, and barks for medicinal purposes.
Facial Acupuncture is an extension of traditional acupuncture providing anti-aging benefits. The treatment uses specialized needles to stimulate your lymphatic and circulatory system; they work together to nourish skin from the inside out and help your skin look younger, smoother, and healthier.
Fire Cupping is an ancient Chinese form of alternative medicine in which a local suction is created on the skin. It is like a reverse massage; instead of pushing tissues, it pulls.
Acupressure involves placing physical pressure, by hand or elbow on different pressure points on the surface of the body (which may not be located near the symptom but is related by what is called the meridian system) to bring about relief through greater balance and circulation of fluids (blood, lymph) and metabolic energies in the body (heat, Qi).
