This is a traditional Chinese therapy using herbal moxa sticks made from dried mugwort. The sticks are lit and held close to the acupuncture points on your feet to give a gentle heat.


1. Preparation

The patient is made comfortable, and appropriate acupuncture points are selected and prepared with acupuncture needles. Moxa, derived from the mugwort plant, is then readied in either loose form or as moxa sticks.

2. Moxibustion Treatment

The moxibustion treatment commences with the ignition of the moxa stick. Heat and herbal properties from the moxa gently stimulate the acupuncture points, either through a circular motion or by holding the stick stationary over each point for a specified duration.

3. Post-Treatment Care

After the moxibustion session, acupuncture needles are removed, and post-treatment care instructions are provided. This may involve dietary and lifestyle recommendations to support the healing process.

4. Follow-Up

Follow-up appointments may be scheduled to monitor progress, make necessary adjustments to the treatment plan, and offer ongoing support.

Benefits of Moxibustion

1. Physical Effects

Patients often experience immediate relief from pain or discomfort in the treated areas after moxibustion therapy. This is accompanied by improved circulation, resulting in a sensation of warmth and relaxation around the acupuncture points.

2. Energetic Effects

Following a moxibustion treatment, patients typically report increased energy levels and vitality. This is attributed to the balanced flow of qi, or life energy, throughout the body, fostering a sense of harmony and well-being.

3. Psychological Effects

Moxibustion therapy induces deep relaxation and reduces stress levels both during and after the treatment. This leads to an improved mood and mental clarity, resulting in a greater sense of calm and focus.

4. Functional Effects

The effects of moxibustion therapy extend to improved functioning of targeted organs and systems, such as the digestive, respiratory, or reproductive systems. This improvement in function is instrumental in enhancing overall health and vitality.
