Moxibustion

Moxibustion Therapy is a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine that effectively warms the yang and nourishes the qi (energy), dissolves stasis, and warms and stimulates the meridian points by applying warmth onto the skin. It is considered one of the most ancient medical healthcare methods in Chinese medicinal culture and is known to help improve overall health.

BENEFITS

Moxibustion is a therapy that involves burning loose moxa wool to heat the acupoints on the human body. When burned, Moxa leaves, known to have a warm medicinal property, produce smoke. The moxa smoke, together with the heat produced by the moxa fire, warms the qi and blood, and expels colds. Moxa leaf oil also provides a lot of health benefits that excites the nerve centers, relieves heat, stops bleeding, and eases chronic pain.

Applying moxa to the Zusanli (Lower he-sea point of the Stomach, ST 36), Zhongwan (front-mu point of the stomach, CV 12), Mingmen (lower torso, GV 4), Qihai (below the navel, CV 6), Guanyuan (below the navel, CV 4)) will nourish the stomach, yang qi, and essence and blood, thus strengthening the body’s resistance, preventing diseases and offering good health.
