Moxibustion

Moxibustion is an external thermal and IR therapy that is used to promote healing in the body. Moxibustion is most effective with Mugwort Floss (the fine "hairs" from the flowers) or a blend of floss and leaves that can be used dried or as a charcoal.

Moxibustion has a long history dating back further than Acupuncture. There are many different forms and techniques of moxibustion used in our clinic with great success.

The herb is burned near or on acupuncture points and/or affected areas of the body. The herb produces a broad spectrum infrared beam when burned that can penetrate deep into the body and trigger a variety of healing responses. Moxibustion is excellent for increasing circulation and alleviating the discomfort of arthritis. It can do this by quickening the blood, warming the tissue, and breaking up stagnation, drying dampness and stopping pain.  

Recent research has also shown that moxa applied to various acupuncture points consistently over a few weeks actually measurably tightens the cell junctions in the large intestine reversing the damage from Crohn's Disease.
