What is moxa therapy?

Moxibustion, often referred to as moxa therapy, is a traditional healing technique that originated in China over 2,000 years ago and is a key component of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). It involves the burning of dried mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris) on or near specific points on the body to stimulate healing.

Key Features of Moxibustion:

  1. Mugwort (Moxa): The dried leaves of the mugwort plant are processed into a soft, spongy texture known as moxa. This can be used in various forms, such as loose moxa, moxa sticks or cones, and even as part of acupuncture needles.

  2. Warming Technique: Moxibustion is often used to add warmth to specific acupuncture points or regions of the body. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, it is believed that this warmth helps to invigorate the flow of Qi (vital energy) and blood in the body, promoting overall health and healing.

  3. Direct and Indirect Methods:
    • Direct Moxibustion: Involves placing a small cone or ball of moxa directly on the skin at an acupuncture point. 
    • Indirect Moxibustion: The more commonly used method. The moxa is either burned near the skin without direct contact or placed on an acupuncture needle inserted into an acupuncture point.

Benefits of Moxibustion:

Moxibustion is often used to warm specific areas or points on the body. In TCM, warmth is associated with improved circulation and the removal of cold or dampness from the body.

The heat generated during moxibustion is believed to invigorate the flow of Qi and blood, promoting balance within the body’s energy systems.

Some practitioners use moxibustion to support the immune system, especially during times of weakness or vulnerability.

Moxibustion is used in women’s health for conditions such as endometriosis or breech presentation during pregnancy.

Moxibustion can be used to alleviate pain, particularly pain associated with cold or damp conditions.

Moxibustion should be performed by trained and qualified practitioners to ensure safety and effectiveness.

I’m very greatful for Julie for the treatments I got in my third trimester! It’s not just her job but her passion and part of her life style. I never had acupuncture before and I was a bit worried at first but Julie’s calmness, confidence and knowledge helped me to understand there is nothing to be worried about. She was recommanded by my doula. In the last weeks of pregnancy I got treatments once a week and I also went to see her while I was in labour to help things get moving since my labour was stalling.The last session I got an overdue treatment which helped my labour to progress. I highly recommend her to anyone, she is absolutely amazing! Thank you 💕
