Moxibustion

Moxibustion is an ancient technique of warming the acupuncture needle with the herb mugwort. The smouldering herb is placed on the end of the needle, creating a warmth that transfers down the needle and penetrates to the deepest level of muscle tissue, bringing a soothing feeling that relaxes the muscle and brings you a wonderful sense of relaxation and relief.

Sometimes moxibustion is used instead of acupuncture. The smouldering moxa stick is held a few inches away from specific acupuncture points. The heat radiates into the point, creating a relaxing effect and stimulating the body’s healing response.
