Moxibustion is a traditional Chinese medicine technique that involves the burning of mugwort, a small, spongy herb, to facilitate healing. Moxibustion has been used throughout Asia for thousands of years; in fact, the actual Chinese character for acupuncture, translated literally, means "acupuncture-moxibustion." The purpose of moxibustion, as with most forms of traditional Chinese medicine, is to strengthen the blood, stimulate the flow of Qi, and maintain general health.

Moxibustion   is  mainly  applied  in  two  ways,  by  burning  moxa  wands,  that  are   lit  and  suspended   above   the skin,or moxa cones that are placed over a protective medium on the skin before being lit. In both cases, the combustion of mugwort leaf uses the warmth and the therapeutic herbal vapour to improve   the circulation   of Qi   and   Blood,   warm   the  meridians,  relieve  pain, increase resistance to disease and subdue swelling.

Moxibustion can be used for a wide range of conditions and is particularly effective for chronic conditions and constitutional weakness such as:

  • Arthritic conditions such as Rheumatoid Arthritis and Osteoarthritis

  • Neurological conditions such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Bell's Palsy and fibromyalgia

  • Sports injuries

  • Upper respiratory tract infections and asthma

  • Digestive disorders such as constipation and IBS

  • Gynaecological conditions such as painful periods and excessive vaginal discharge

  • Reproductive conditions such as abnormal foetal position, infertility, assisted IVF and impotence

  • Common cold and fatigue
