Moxibustion has been proven to promote both blood and qi circulation. It has been used for a number of health problems, including: arthritis, back pain, migraines, muscle stiffness, menstrual cramps, digestive problems and ulcers.

Moxibustion is a variation of acupuncture, using certain herbs –

usually mugwort or moxa -  burnt on or near specific acupoints of the

body to produce a particular effect.  Moxa itself has a warming effect.


Moxibustion has a 3000 year history in China and has spread all over Asia.


Historians believe that moxibustion pre-dated acupuncture and needling came to supplement moxa.


According to classical texts, moxibustion and acupuncture are complimentary, each one enhancing the effects of the other.


Moxibustion techniques are:

Direct moxibustion: A small, cone-shaped amount of moxa is placed on

top of an acupoint and burned on the skin.

Indirect: One end of a moxa stick (shape and size of a cigar) is lit and held

a few centimetres from the skin, usually near inserted needles.

Needle Moxa:  The moxa is burnt at the end of an inserted acupuncture needle.
