It’s a misconception that Traditional Chinese Medicine is limited only to acupuncture and herbs. Moxibustion is another alternative Traditional Chinese Medicine which involves heat to create a therapeutic effect. Heat is provided on the acupuncture points and suction is created. The experts of SAGE Wellness Center use the crushed or pure form of Artemis. However, we also use herb mugwort or ai ya as both produce excess heat and perfectly generates suction. The purpose of moxibustion is to increase the blood circulation and stimulate the digestive system.
How Does Moxibustion Therapy Work?
The concept of moxibustion is based on the theory of energy channels and it’s similar to the acupuncture. Qi energy is strengthened by burning the moxa wool. The stagnations are removed from the body and blood vessels and experts believe that if stagnation can’t be cured with moxibustion then acupuncture can also not cure it. Moxibustion is the best solution to the depression happened due to the cold as it increases the blood circulation and improves the working of body organs. SAGE Wellness Center treats cold-dampness into the deep muscles with the help of moxibustion.
Types of Moxibustion
Direct and indirect moxibustion are the two types of moxibustion SAGE Wellness Center offers both kinds of moxibustions depends on the condition of the patient and prescription of the physicians’ Direct moxibustion involves the direct intact of moxa wool while the patient stays on the comfortable bed. The wool is burnt and placed on the acupoints to increase the blood circulation.
On the other hand, moxa stick goes closer to the patient’s skin but doesn’t touch it. The acupoint gets warmed and it directs blood flow and other fluids in the body. A tiger warmer is also used in indirect moxibustion and a buffer is placed between the skin and moxa stick. Garlic, ginger, and salts are the common buffers used in an indirect method.
The third type of moxibustion involves the wrapping of smaller balls of moxa around the acupuncture needles and practitioners keep needles lose to the skin until it gets warmed. The heat moves towards the acupuncture point and boosts the impact of acupuncture therapy. When acupuncture is joined with moxibustion it’s called acu-moxibustion.
