Moxibustion Applications

A Dose of Moxi

Moxibustion is a traditional Chinese technique that involves the burning of mugwort, a small, spongy herb, to facilitate healing. The purpose of moxibustion is to strengthen the blood, stimulate the flow of qi and maintain general health.

There are two types of moxibustion: Direct and Indirect

Direct Moxibustion

In direct moxibustion a small, cone-shaped amount of moxa* is placed on top of an acupuncture point and burned. This type of moxibustion is categorized into two types: scarring and non-scarring. With scarring moxibuxsion, the moxa is placed on a point, ignited and allowed to remain on the point until it burns out completely.

This may lead to localized scarring, blisters and scarring after healing. With non-scarring moxibustion, the moxa is placed on the point and lit, but is removed before it burns the skin. The patient will experience a pleasant heating sensation that penetrates deep into the skin, but should not experience any pain, blistering or scarring.

Indirect Moxibustion

Indirect Moxibuxtion

In indirect moxibuxtion a practitioner lights one end of the moxa stick and holds it close to the area being treated for several minutes until the area turns red. In another form of indirect moxibustion a needle is inserted into an accupoint and retained.

The tip of the needle is then wrapped in moxa and ignited. After the desired effect is achieved, the moxa is extinguished. Indirect moxibustion is currently the more popular form of care.

Precautions

Although moxibustion has been safely used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries, it is not for everyone. It should not be used on a person diagnosed with too much heat or on patients with respiratory problems. Smokeless moxa sticks should be used because moxa produces smoke and has a pungent smell.

Body Firming and Toning

This treatment reduces cellulite formation and enhances muscular strength, which, in turn, firms and tones the body muscles. It is also advised for sagging skin.

Breast Shaping and Firming

Moxibustion is a non-surgical treatment for breast enlargement, reduction and sagging breasts.

Acne, Scars and Pigmentation

Both internal and external factors causing acne and pigmentation are dealt with at the root level, thereby avoiding reoccurrence. It also eliminates scars and pits, leaving the skin clean and clear.

Moxi Needles

Moles, Warts and Freckles

It is a nonsurgical, safe and painless treatment that ensures permanent removal of moles, warts and freckles in one or more sittings.

Removal of Unwanted Hair

This treatment targets the hair follicles which stops the regeneration of hair. Unwanted hair can be permanently removed with a quick effective and painless method that is harmless to the skin.

Permanent Makeup

Thin, light haired or over-plucked eyebrows can be recreated and shaped permanently. A permanent eye makeup (eyeliner) can be done to further enhance the beauty of the eyes. A permanent lip colouring can be done to give lips the desired shape.

Filling Up of White Patches

It is a non-surgical treatment for filling up of any lucoderma or white patches on any part of the body in just one session without being harsh to the skin. The pigment used for filling is matched with the skin colour.

 

Mugwort Leaf

*Mugwort is used in the practice of traditional Chinese medicine in a pulverized and aged form called moxa. Suppliers usually age the mugwort and grind it up to a fluff; practitioners burn the fluff or process it further into a stick that resembles a non-smokeable cigar. They can use it indirectly, with acupuncture needles, or sometimes burn it on a patient's skin.
