Moxibustion (moxa) is a beautifully gentle technique of warming acupuncture points with a herb known as mugwort (ai ye). Once burning, moxa creates a very pleasant warming sensation which penetrates deep under the skin to stimulate the surrounding tissues, and is removed before it gets too hot. Moxa is used to increase blood and energy (qi) flow within the body, relieve pain, improve energy levels, and decrease inflammation. Your practitioner will be able to assess whether or not moxa may be beneficial for you.
We also frequently use infrared heat lamps in our treatments, which feel AMAZING and have a bunch of fantastic, healing effects. Ask us more about the heat lamps in clinic.
