Moxibustion is a therapy of warming and nourishing the body channels to improve circulation of the energetic flow and blood. The compacted plant Artemisia Vulgaris – Mugwort– is burned as a stick above the acu points, in the moxa box which is then placed directly on the desired body area or on the needle to improve the action of the needling.
The benefits of moxibustion therapy either on its own, or as a part of acupuncture treatment are multi fold:
Brilliant as a pain moderation technique, in conditions such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, pain in any area, including any joint in the body, menstrual and sciatic pain.
Excellent in digestive issues, such as any of the IBS symptoms, constipation, loose stools, and pain on bowel movements.
Irreplacable for fertility issues, dysmenorrhea, cramps, and cold uterus, boosting the blood flow and supporting oxygenation of the whole lower abdomen area.
