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.
