Moxibustion

Moxibustion is the use of a dried Chinese herb called Moxa (or Mugwort).

It can be used directly, in the placing of hand-rolled cones of various sizes directly onto acupuncture points on the skin, or indirectly by burning cones on the head of a needle. Alternatively using a moxa stick which is burned near the skin or lastly, by burning moxa on top of a medium such as a layer of salt or a slice of ginger.  Moxa can influence the Qi of the body through warmth and its ability to move Qi and Blood. These attributes contribute greatly to the successful treatment of pain and conditions as varied as menstrual cramps to arthritis. Western scientific research has found that moxa can stimulate the blood flow in the uterus and pelvic area, also having been used for many years in the turning of breech babies.

Once lit, moxa burns very slowly and the whole process is carefully monitored with your safety being of the utmost importance at all times. Consent will always be gained as with all procedures before use.
