Moxabustion Treatment as an adjunct to Acupuncture


moxabustionDirect Moxabustion is the application of the herb mugwort to acupuncture points and is one of the oldest and most effective forms of therapy.  It is a technique that originated in China and was introduced to Japan more than a thousand years ago.

Mugwort is part of the chrysanthemum family.  Great variation occurs in the grade of moxa available for therapeutic practice. Direct moxabustion uses the highest grade of pure moxa possible, which allows for its application directly on the skin.

Direct moxabustion is applied by using the fingers to roll a small amount of moxa into the size of a sesame seed or half of a grain of rice. This piece is then placed on the skin at an acupuncture point and burned with a special type of incense. The result is an intense, penetrating heat that stimulates the acupuncture point involved without being uncomfortable for the patient.

Discomfort is minimized because:


1) only extra-pure moxa is used,  

2) the moxa is rolled into the smallest size possible and

3) a special liniment is placed on the skin to prevent patient discomfort.

Direct moxabustion achieves clinical effectiveness through its deep penetrating heat.  When moxa is applied directly to the skin, it causes an elevation in blood cell counts (especially that of white blood cells). This cauterization effect strengthens one's immunity.  Also, the burning of moxa directly on the skin produces a deep, penetrating heat that is very effective in increasing circulation and reducing inflammation.

When used to treat infertility, direct moxabustion is effecting at relaxing the uterine artery, increasing circulation, warming and relaxing the uterus.  In clinical practice, follicular stimulation and endometrial thickness have been benefited through the use of moxabustion.

Direct moxabustion also releases endorphins which help to relax the patient and create a sense of calm and mental focus.  Patients have reported feeling a sense of warmth and well-being for days after a moxabustion treatment.
