MOXIBUSTION

moxa-closeup-photo-book-background:: Moxibustion (aka ‘Moxabustion’ or ‘Moxa’) is a tonifying (strengthening) process whereby common herbs (primarily mugwort, Artemisia vulgaris) are burned over specific acu-points relative to a condition. The moxa burns like an ember, with no flame. It may be burned on the handle of the needle, above the skin, on salt or a slice of ginger.

Moxabustion may be used for arthritis pain in the hand.

The gentle heat created by the moxa provides a pleasant sensation of warmth and nurtured relaxation. This therapeutic warmth is readily absorbed by the body, improving the blood circulation and stimulating the body’s energy flow in order to quicken the healing process.

In China, there is no separation between acupuncture and moxibustion (also known as “Golden-Needle Therapy”), and moxa may be used to treat many conditions such as weakness, aches & pain, and sensations of coldness.

It is an integral part of authentic Acupuncture when used to treat a variety of “cold” diseases: certain diseases of the nerves and muscles, an assortment of skin disorders, as well as chronic nonmalignant tumors, arthritis, gout and ‘cold types’ of rheumatism, and rigidity and stiffness of the extremities.
