Adjunctive therapies

A number of other treatment modalities may be used alongside acupuncture. These include Moxibustion (commonly referred to as moxa), Cupping and Guasha.

Moxa is a herb that is burnt in order to warm the body. This is done either on the end of a needle to send warmth down into the point, as a small cone on the skin itself or rolled into a stick and held a few centimetres from the skin.

cupping at Brook Green Clinic HammersmithCupping

Cupping involves heating the air inside a glass cup with a flame before placing the cup on the body. As the air in the cups cools it contracts creating a mild suction effect on the skin.


Guasha is a simple and direct way of stimulating the flow of Qi. Oil is rubbed into the skin and then a china spoon is used to scrape the skin until redness arises.
