How can Moxibustion help you?

The heat generated during Moxibustion helps increase the flow of vital energy (also known as “qi” or “chi”) throughout your body via certain pathways (known as “meridians“). In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), stimulating the flow of chi is considered essential to achieving health and wellness. This approach to Healthcare is based on the belief that blockages in the flow of chi contribute to physical and mental health problems.

TCM or other Healthcare Practitioners often use Moxibustion to help treat the following health problems:

  • Arthritis
  • Back pain
  • Headaches and Migraines
  • Hot Flashes

Moxibustion is a Traditional Chinese Medicine technique that involves the burning of mugwort, a small, spongy herb, to facilitate healing. Moxibustion has been used throughout Asia for thousands of years. The actual Chinese character for acupuncture, translated literally, means “acupuncture-moxibustion.” 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 one of the types of treatments used in Traditional Chinese Medicine. It involves burning moxa, a cone or stick made of ground mugwort leaves, on or near your body’s meridians and Acupuncture points.

Practitioners believe that the resulting heat helps stimulate these points and improves the flow of qi (energy) in your body. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine practices, this increased qi circulation can help with a range of health issues, from chronic pain to digestive troubles.
