Here’s 5 things you should know about moxibustion:
1. Moxibustion can relieve pain.
Suffering from chronic pain can be debilitating, making it difficult to focus on anything else. While there are a variety of medications available to help manage pain, many of them come with a long list of side effects. However, moxibustion is a safe and effective alternative treatment that can provide relief without the negative side effects. Moxibustion involves the burning of mugwort, a medicinal herb, over specific points on the body. The heat and smoke from the moxa stick helps to relieve pain by stimulating blood flow and improving circulation. In addition, moxibustion can also help to boost the immune system and reduce inflammation.
2. Moxibustion can boost immunity
Moxibustion is an ancient Chinese healing technique that involves the burning of moxa (a type of herb) on or near the skin. The heat generated by the moxa can help to improve blood circulation, relieve pain, and boost immunity. Studies have shown that moxibustion can stimulate the release of cytokines (immune system proteins) and increase the activity of natural killer cells (a type of white blood cell). As a result, moxibustion may be an effective way to reduce the risk of infections and promote overall health.
3. Moxibustion can promote circulation
Moxibustion is used to reinforce fire and yang energies within the body and is often used when patients are feeling cold or have deficient blood levels. The moxa stick is lit and placed on or just above the skin, where it smoulders and emits a deep heat. The warmth provided by moxibustion relaxes muscles, eases pain, and increases local circulation of both blood and qi. The increased circulation of blood and qi promotes healing by bringing nutrients and oxygen to the affected area. In addition, moxibustion can also help to break up blockages and increase the range of motion in joints.
