Moxibustion

Moxibustion is a form of heat therapy that involves the burning of medicinal herbs on or around acupuncture points.  Acupuncture and Moxibustion complement each other to form one mode of therapy, much as two strands of fiber woven together form a rope. The therapeutic effect is boosted or complimented when both forms of treatment are used together. There are many benefits to Moxibustion Therapy. The heat produced from the burning moxa penetrates deeply into the muscles and tissues, improving circulation and helping to reduce both pain and inflammation. Many times it is one of the most effective methods to supplement and raise the vitality of the body.  Research has shown that receiving moxibustion can produce white blood cells and strengthen the immune system. This technique has incredible ability to restore energy and zest to the chronically fatiqued, and wipe away pains that tend to creep up in damp and cold weather.
