Chinese Medicine utilizes five main modalities to restore balance, maintain health, and promote longevity: Acupuncture, Moxibustion + Cupping, Qigong, Herbal Medicine + Nutrition, and Massage.Each of these modalities aid in the proper flow of qi, or energy, which is our life force. Chinese medicine believes that pain or obstruction develop when the qi is blocked. Essentially, these obstructions are the source of disharmony or disease. There are many types of qi in the body, for example: air, blood, bone marrow, body fluids, etc. When the qi flows smoothly and freely in our bodies, our skin, muscles, tendons, bones, blood, and our very immunity is nourished and vitalized.
