Moxibustion utilizes the unique burning properties of dried plant materials known as moxa. During this process, dried Chinese Mugwort is burned near the surface of the skin. The heat generated and transferred to the skin helps to warm and invigorate the flow of Qi throughout the body.
When receiving moxibustion you may experience a warming sensation which quickly radiates from the site and often follows jing luo channels, resulting in a warming away from the site of application. This result is most welcome as it indicates that the Qi signals are being freed within the body.
Moxibustion is used to treat a number of aliments including but not limited to:
- Digestive Problems
- Protection against cold and flu strains
- Conditions present during late term pregnancy such as breech presentation
