Almost 3 months before the end of the year, we are going to share with you the latest developments in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) therapies that have proven to be effective this year.
TCM continues to evolve and provide alternative approaches to health and well-being. Here are some notable therapies:
1. Enhanced Moxibustion: Moxibustion is a technique that uses heat generated from the combustion of the Artemisia vulgaris (moxa) plant to stimulate acupuncture points.
New forms of moxibustion have been developed, such as infrared moxibustion and pulsed moxibustion, which offer more precise application of heat and greater comfort for patients.
These improved techniques have expanded treatment options and have shown benefits in relieving pain, improving circulation, and strengthening the immune system.
2. Advanced Cupping Therapy: Cupping therapy is a practice in which glass or plastic cups are placed on the skin to create suction.
This year, new generation suction cups have been developed that allow more precise control of pressure and suction intensity.
In addition, silicone suction cups have been introduced that are more flexible and comfortable for the patient.
These improvements have expanded the applications of cupping therapy, ranging from relieving muscle pain and inflammation to improving circulation and detoxifying the body.
Dr. Maríam Tovar specializes in the application of these treatments based on the diagnosis of your consultation.
