Acupuncture is a procedure by which disease can be prevented and treated through proper insertion of needles into points accompanied by different manipulations. Recent techniques include Epidermal Acupuncture which involves stimulation of the skin without needle puncture.
Auricular Acupuncture is a procedure by which chronic and more difficult conditions are treated using the sites on the ear which correspond to other parts of the body.
Moxibustion treats and prevents diseases by applying heat to points or certain locations of the human body.
Cupping is a method of treating disease by causing local congestion. A partial vacuum is created in jars, usually by means of heat, which are then applied to the skin, drawing up the underlying tissues.
