Moxa (Moxibustion)

Moxibustion involves the burning of dried mugwort (moxa) near or on specific acupuncture points. This therapy aims to stimulate the flow of Qi and warm the body, promoting healing and balance.


During a moxibustion session, you may experience a pleasant warmth and a subtle, relaxing aroma. The benefits of moxibustion include increased circulation, pain relief, and strengthened immune function. It is considered to be particularly effective for conditions related to cold and dampness in the body, for example dysmenorrhea.


Moxibustion can complement acupuncture treatments by providing additional warmth and energy to specific areas, enhancing the overall therapeutic effects, and leaving you with a sense of revitalization and well-being.
