Moxibustion

Other Modalities - Orla Callahan Acupuncture in Natick, MA, Wellesley, MAMoxibustion involves the heating of acupuncture points with smoldering mugwort herb (known as moxa). Moxibustion stimulates circulation, counteracts cold and dampness in the body, and promotes the smooth flow of blood and qi. This safe, non-invasive technique may be used alone, but it is generally used in conjunction with acupuncture treatment.

Massage

Based on the same Oriental medical principles as acupuncture, the massage techniques I use focus on to improving the flow of qi through the meridian channels. Massage can be particularly effective for conditions involving muscles, tendons and joints, such as structural misalignment, orthopedic problems and sports injuries.

Cupping

Orla Callahan offers Acupuncture in Natick, MA, Wellesley, MACupping is an ancient technique, used in many cultures, in which a special cup is applied to the skin and held in place by suction. The suction draws superficial tissue into the cup, which may either be left in place or moved along the body. Cupping brings fresh blood to the area and helps improve circulation. Traditional cupping, sometimes referred to as “fire cupping," uses heat to create a vacuum-like suction inside of glass cups. In modern times, cups that use a small pump to create suction have also been introduced.

Qigong / Tai Chi

Qigong means "life energy cultivation" and is traditionally seen as a method to cultivate and balance qi. The practice involves rhythmic movement, focused breathing, and concentrated awareness. Qigong is a safe and gentle meditative exercise that promotes healing of the mind and body.
