Moxabustion or moxa is a Chinese herb that is burnt by the acupuncturist over the acupuncture points. It is a useful and effective treatment that is often used alongside acupuncture, cupping and tuina massage.

Moxabustion is a relaxing therapeutic method that uses the burning of specific herbs over the acupuncture point or the affected area in order to produce a warm / hot stimulation to the patient. This heat acts on the acupuncture point, warming the needle and further enhancing the treatment to improve the balance of the body.

Moxabustion is an effective treatment for aches and pains in joints or muscles, digestive and menstrual disorders. Please contact us for more information on how Moxabustion can help to alleviate pain and discomfort.
