Moxibustion

Moxibustion therapy the Art of Healing
What is moxibustion?

The flow of QI
Like Acupuncture, moxibustion is also an important component of Traditional Chinese Medicine with a history of more than 3000 years. It is the process whereby a stick or cone of burning mugwort (Artemesia vulgaris, also called Ai Ye in traditional Chinese medicine) is placed either directly on the skin or indirectly above the skin, over inflamed and affected areas of the body. When lit, moxa sticks burns slowly and provides a penetrating heat that can enter the meridian channels to stimulate the flow of Qi, strengthen the blood flow, therefore releasing therapeutic properties and helping maintain general health.

Moxibustion also causes positive effects on the immune system.
As with acupuncture, moxibustion is able to promote body balance (homeostasis) because it clears energy blocks, but instead uses needles to apply heat to the meridian points.

The use of therapy is also associated with problems with “cold” patterns, such as injury or arthritis (those where the patient feels better with heat), cold extremities, and protecting the patient from colds and flu.

During the therapy warmth and herbal properties of the mugwort enter our pores. The nerves on our skin are stimulated and as a result the pituitary gland and adrenal gland gets activated. The heat also facilitates a better blood circulation and leads to a general feeling of relaxation. Thus, this treatment is both, relaxing and healing.
