Visceral Therapy (massage of internal organs)
The abdominal is like the second brain. I've heard this repeated from absolutely different representatives of Alternative Medicine. There is an Abdominal Kingdom in our body, with its own hierarchy. There is very specific relationship between our internal organs, physical as well as emotional. One dysfunctional organ can impair the work of its relative organs. Muscle tension, blood, lymph or energy channels stagnation, or vessels stretching might be reasons of discomfort, pain, or a more serious pathology. Visceral therapy can help ease many chronic pathologies. Furthermore, other therapies like acupuncture, body massage, cups, and dietary supplements work better after your abdominal has been put in order.
Look at your blood.
One part of our treatment is patient education. Look under the microscope to see how your blood behaves, how active your leukocytes are, how healthy your erythrocytes are and much more… Think about what kinds of lifestyle changes can help your blood look better.
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) our body has more then 50 energy channels.14 of them have acupuncture points. 12 Primary channels belong to 12 major organs and logically and physically connected to each others. There is also strong physical and emotional relationship between our organs. By stimulating or sedating different points using acupuncture needles we are affecting not only certain organ but also its "relatives" and bringing Yin-Yang balance of our body in order. There is no disorders in a world which cannot be treated by acupuncture.

Moxa (made from mugwort or common wormwood) - dry herb or pressed cigarette shape stick. Very hot temperature and certain vibration during moxa burning make very strong therapeutic effect when external heat is not contraindicated for a patient. Moxa is good for:
Indirect moxa. On ginger slice and salt
Indirect moxa. On a needle. Strong
warming effect through the needle
to the certain point and channel.
Poor blood circulation because of trauma, infection or some organs dysfunction might cause chronic discomfort and pain. In TCM, pain is an energy or blood stagnation. By scraping the skin and opening pores we are letting toxic blood come out. When we manage to let internal heat and toxins escape through the open pores, patient might feel relieve right away. Blood marks afterwards can stay on a body for up to 4-5 days.
