Moxibustion Ai Ju
MOXIBUSTION AI JU?
Moxibustion is a TCM technique that involves burning of mugwort (Artemisia Vulgaris), a small spongy herb, on particular acupoints on the body to facilitate healing. Moxibustion “heat” therapy mainly helps to warm the meridians, improve blood circulation, dispel cold and dampness, and strengthen the immune system. Scientific reviews have reported an increase in red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets around the area of treatment, effectively improving oxygen uptake by the cells of the body and driving the targeted systemic functions. Many patients report a warm, soothing sensation during and after a session of moxibustion.
HOW MOXIBUSTION AI JU WORKS?
Our therapist will hover 3-4 cm away from your body, while monitoring the heating process and ensuring you do not experience any pain or discomfort during treatment with moxa sticks; patients typically report feeling warmth all over after receiving this therapy technique because it works by increasing circulation in affected areas through local heat application without causing damage like topical agents can sometimes accomplish!
