Moxibustion is a form of heat therapy in which dried plant materials called "moxa" are burned on or very near the surface of the skin. The intention is to deeply warm and heat the body. It is not uncommon for patients receiving moxibustion to report a sudden flooding of warmth that quickly radiates along a specific pathway. This is a good result, as it indicates the arrival of the Qi and signals that the flow of Qi has been freed in the channel.

Moxibustion can be used for pain, digestive problems, OBGYN conditions, stimulate the immune system and breeched babies.

Moxibustion is used to treat a wide range of conditions, including:

  • Pain

  • Injury

  • Trauma

  • Repetitive strain conditions like tennis elbows and carpal tunnel syndrome

  • Headache

  • Rheumatoid and osteoarthritis

  • Back pain and sciatica

  • Fibromyalgia

  • Dysmenorrhea and other gynecological conditions

  • Asthma

  • Post operative and chemotherapy nausea

  • Stroke rehabilitation

  • Patients undergoing recovery from addiction and substance abuse
