July & August 2019 | Eastern Currents e-Newsletter | Issue 42

Eastern Currents has been importing moxa in all its various forms for over 24 years. Recently, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) conducted a standard examination of one of our shipments. The official conducting the review was uncertain how to classify the moxa products in our shipment and decided to contact Health Canada for guidance...

Save 20% on NEW Fascia Buddy Silicone Facial Cups
Facial cups are available in two sizes:
18mm opening (cup A)
8mm opening (cup B)
Fascia Buddy Facial Silicone Cups offer the user more control over the suction of delicate facial tissues. By utilizing a balloon-style cavity versus the standard cone-style cavity, the user has more compressible air volume to create more refined levels of suction. This additional control is exactly what a practitioner wants when cupping over delicate areas. 

The cups are translucent so you can see the change of the skin from the outside of the cup to gauge tissue reaction. They are also pliable to allow for easy changing of the suction area to accommodate bony or narrow surfaces.
