Reiki

“Reiki is a spiritual healing practice that can help return us to balanced functioning on every level. Reiki is usually facilitated by light touch and can typically bring stress reduction and relief from pain and anxiety. Reiki supports our wellbeing and strengthens our natural ability to heal by encouraging balance."
From Reiki: A Comprehensive Guide by Pamela Miles

Gua Sha

Gua Sha is a technique to promote circulation by freeing up blood stagnation or congestion. It involves repeated strokes on the surface of the skin with a rounded instrument which most often results in petechiae on the skin, or small red dots. Depending on the amount of congestion the petechiae can take anywhere from 2-4 days to disappear. Gua sha usually feels good to the patient, like a deep massage. www.guasha.com

Moxibustion

Tracy Schmid offers moxibustion in Park Slope, Brooklyn and Union Square, NYCMoxibustion 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.

Cupping

Tracy Schmid offers cupping therapy in Park Slope, Brooklyn and Union Square, NYCCupping 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.
