External and Manual therapies are utilized for orthopedics, sports medicine, rheumatic conditions as well as any number or chronic and internal disorders. 


Guasha and cupping are fascinating myofascial therapies increasingly being sought out for their unique therapeutic benefits - often more popularly associated with "detoxification," pain reduction, improved circulation and reduction of muscle tension and inflammation.


Manual medicine forms it's own branch of therapy in Asian medicine - e.g. tuina, marma-chikitsa and bone-setting. 


External therapies traditionally includes heat (moxibustion), massage, vital point therapy, catheterization, bloodletting, and application of compresses and poultices.
