COURSE DESCRIPTION:
Cupping, gua sha, and moxibustion are key therapeutic applications that can either be used as an adjunct to acupuncture or a treatment protocol on its own. Cupping is a suction technique that draws superficial tissue into a cup which helps improve circulation. Gua sha is a healing protocol that involves gently spooning or scraping to create transitory therapeutic petechiae called sha which represents extravastion of blood in a problem or pain area. Moxibustion (known as moxa) involves the heating of acupuncture points with a smoldering mugwort herb and is used to stimulate, circulate, and counteract cold and dampness in the body to promote the smooth flow of qi and blood.

In Part I of this course, Dr. Alex Chen, a seasoned acupuncturist with over 25 years of experience, shares the history and therapeutic indications of gua sha. The indications of this application include a wide range of medical conditions, including the treatment of pain. Simplicity of their use makes them accessible to any practitioner for the treatment of various physical, mental, and emotional disorders.
