To celebrate Winter Solstice at The Health Clinic this year, we are offering a 20-minute moxibustion treatment for only $20.
Moxibustion (灸jiǔ) is one of traditional Chinese medicine’s therapeutic techniques – earliest records of moxibustion date back to 581 BC. This technique consists of burning dried mugwort – the dried leaves of Artemisia Vulgaris – a plant that is known for its anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antimicrobial properties.
Today, the mugwort is carefully aged, ground and shaped into moxa sticks, and in clinic, we light one end of the moxa stick and hold it above selected acupuncture points. This creates a lovely warmth that penetrates the point, travels through the channels, and stimulates the body’s physiological functions. Hence the reason why we have so many patients that come into The Health Clinic asking for moxa.
When applied by qualified Chinese medicine practitioners, moxibustion is a very popular method to strengthen the body, prevent illness and maintain health. It is an amazing form of treatment that can help many different acute and chronic illnesses, such as:
- digestive issues
- female health
- pain and/or musculoskeletal complaints
- sleep / anxiety
- autoimmune disease
- general health overall
- plus, loads more
A very famous traditional Chinese medicine proverb says, ‘if all else fails, use moxa’!
