Remedial Massage (Tuina) Tuina (Chinese Medicine Remedial Massage) is very effective in treating sore, tight and/or injured muscles and relieve pain. Lymphatic drainage massage is effective at stimulating lymph flow and reducing fluid retention. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Cupping and Guasha Cupping is used to release tight muscles and to detoxify the body of toxins and pathogens. Guasha is similar to cupping but with the use of a ceramic spoon, the skin is scraped until red marks appear, this releases muscle tension, heat and pathogens from the body. Despite the marks on the skin, cupping and guasha are painless procedures. These therapies are very good at relieving the symptoms of colds and flu, muscular aches and pain, stimulating Qi and Blood flow into the area thereby it can be used to treat Bells Palsy and other neurological conditions. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Moxibustion Moxibustion uses the heat of a herbal stick to add warmth back into the body, stimulate the immune system, to relieve pain and improve circulation of Qi and Blood. At Maidstone Chinese Medicine we also use the modern equivalent of a heat lamp which is more convenient and covers a wider area of the body.
