Moxibustion Therapy

August 14, 2017

Moxibustion is a form of heat therapy in which the dried herb mugwort or "moxa" is burned near the surface of the skin. The intention is to warm and invigorate the flow of Qi in the body and dispel certain pathogenic influences.

 

Moxibustion is most often used to dispel cold stagnation (yin) and the conditions that arise as a result. Common problems from a Western medicine lens that may be loosely associated with cold stagnation include:

  • Hypothyroidism

  • Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia)

  • Sluggish digestion

  • Fluid retention

  • Lowered immunity

  • Joint pain

  • Arthritis

  • Depression

  • Low mood

  • Sluggishness

  • Lethargy

 

Moxibustion may be especially useful for people who have not seen adequate results with other treatments. It is therefore recommended for those who are still suffering from a variety of health issues after trying both conventional and alternative therapies.
