    Passionate about delivering the best results possible

    Moxibustion is a traditional Chinese medical that involves the burning of the herb Artemisia Vulgaris (commonly known as mugwort) to stimulate specific acupuncture points on the body. It is performed in a calm and comfortable environment, and patients might experience a warming sensation or mild heat during the procedure. This therapy is often used in conjunction with acupuncture as a part of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) practices.

    Moxibustion can be applied in many different ways and the expected physiological reactions from moxibustion can greatly vary depending on the type and technique used. The choice of moxibustion technique at specific acupuncture points depends on the patient’s conditions and the practitioner’s diagnosis.

    Incorporating ancient wisdom with medical science

    How is it used:

    • Direct Moxibustion: Burning moxa on acupuncture points directly.
    • Stick/Pole Moxibustion: Burning moxa sticks near points for broader coverage, often for hard-to-reach areas.
    • Warm Needle Moxibustion: Igniting moxa on an inserted acupuncture needle to transfer heat to the point.

    Moxibustion is used to address a range of health conditions according to TCM principles. It is often employed to alleviate cold conditions, promote circulation, and treat conditions involving stagnation of Qi and blood. Some of the conditions moxibustion is used for include:

    • Pain relief
    • Digestive disorders
    • Gynaecological Issues
