What is Moxibustion?

This alternative form of medicine has been used for hundreds of years to relieve chills from the body and to naturally rebalance an individual’s qi. Traditionally used in combination with Acupuncture, these treatments aim to warm the body and remove stagnation in order to restore your body back to its best. Although gentle enough to be used on people of all ages, this treatment does involve the burning the Mugwort (a traditional herb) so people with asthma should check with their practitioner before organising an appointment.

How Does It Work?

Moxibustion involves the burning of a traditional herb called Mugwort, with this material available in a range of tools and applications. Cigar-like moxa rolls, raw rice grain size pieces and compressed smokeless sticks and cones are just some of the forms this herb can take, with boxes and specifically designed acupuncture needles also used as tools to deliver the warming effects of this traditional therapy.

What Conditions Can Be Treated With Moxibustion?

Moxibustion can be used to assist the human body’s self healing ability thus improve physical and health related issues natually, with the most common including:
• Muscle cramps & strains
• Digestive disorders
• Painful periods
• Sexual issues
• Poor concentration
• Memory loss / fogginess
• Sports injuries
• Pain that worsens with cold (i.e old injuries, sprains or breaks)
• Colds & Flus
