What is moxibustion (moxa)?

Experience the ancient healing practice of moxibustion, a therapeutic technique that harnesses the power of heat and herbs to promote balance and well-being. Moxibustion involves the burning of mugwort, a medicinal herb, near specific acupoints on the body. This gentle and warming therapy stimulates the flow of energy, known as Qi, and enhances the body's natural healing processes.

Discover the transformative benefits of moxibustion as it helps to nourish and strengthen your body, promote circulation, and restore balance. By applying heat to specific points, moxibustion supports overall health, vitality, and well-being.

Step into a realm of relaxation and rejuvenation as our skilled practitioners utilize the therapeutic properties of moxibustion to guide you on a journey toward optimal health.


Benefits of moxa

When used alongside acupuncture, moxibustion helps to unblock the flow of energy in the body. It has been found to be especially helpful in treating pain, particularly in “cold” pains that respond well to the application of heat. 

Moxa also helps with digestive issues and provides better protection against flus and colds during the winter season.

what to expect

During a moxibustion session, our experienced practitioners will carefully burn the processed herb near specific acupoints on your body. The gentle heat generated by moxibustion penetrates deep into your tissues, promoting a sense of warmth and relaxation. You may feel a gentle sensation of heat during the treatment, creating a soothing and comforting experience.

As the mugwort's healing properties interact with your body's energy pathways, moxibustion helps to invigorate and restore balance. You can expect a deeply relaxing and revitalizing session that leaves you feeling harmonized and rejuvenated.

Join us on a transformative journey as we harness the power of moxibustion to support your well-being and promote holistic health.
