Acute Acupuncture: Moxibustion

Moxibustion is a heat therapy that takes aspects of Yin Yang theory where using cold and hot is a form of treatment to counter pathological Qi that manifests in the body as hot or cold.

Your traditional Chinese Medical practitioner will take dried mugwort and place this over Acupuncture points or areas of the body to add heat.

At Acute Acupuncture, we generally use smokeless MOXA (moxibustion) or the use of an infrared heat lamp. This is primarily used in cold conditions where no heat is present and brings warmth or heat to the Acupuncture point or body area.

Moxibustion is best used in conjunction with Acupuncture, Tuina, Auriculotherapy, herbs, and cupping.
