Moxa Treatment

Moxibustion is a traditional Chinese medicine technique that involves the burning of mugwort, a small, spongy herb, to promote healing with acupuncture. The purpose of moxibustion, as with most forms of traditional Chinese medicine, is to strengthen the blood, stimulate the flow of qi, and maintain general health..

Moxibustion is a form of heat therapy that is hence useful to treating these conditions by expelling the cold, wind and dampness that blocked the flow of "qi" stuck at the joints.

When combined with acupuncture, the moxa is also known to effectively reduce menstrual cramps. Pain relief after injury, including sprains and strains. Pain relief for arthritis and tendonitis. Digestive issues.

You will need to use moxibustion twice a day for seven days for ten minutes each time (morning and evening). Research has shown that moxibustion is most likely to work when the mother also spends ten minutes twice a day in what is called the 'knee chest position'.
