The many modalities of Chinese medicine


Posted by Nirmala N.

If you think Chinese medicine is just acupuncture and Chinese herbs, think again. There are many different kinds of treatments that traditional Chinese medicine uses to address various disorders.

Cupping, a system in which warm air in glass jars creates suction on certain areas of the body to help stimulate qi

A balance of yin and yang foods in the body

Tui na (massage) along the body's meridians

Moxibustion, in which heated plant fiber is placed on different areas of the body

Qi gong, which utilizes movement to stimulate qi flow
