Moxa sticks can change to look like cigarettes or look like cigars. As a result of the examination performed by specialist doctors, this application is decided for the required area and our doctor performs the procedure by sticking the necessary apparatus on the area to be heated. The important thing is that this procedure is done at the right points and by doctors who are experts in this field. Moxa sticks, which burn for an average of 5 minutes, have a therapeutic effect on pain. Thus, the blocked points in our body are opened and Chi energy is provided again. And our body starts to heal itself.
Benefits of Moxa Therapy
Warms Channels: According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, cold can invade the body and settle in acupuncture channels that run through the body. This can cause pain in a specific area that will often feel worse in cold weather and better with the application of heat. For example, some types of arthritis are the “cold type” and are felt more intensely during the winter months. Moxa is particularly helpful in these situations.
Promotes Qi and Blood Circulation: Moxa warms and moves. It helps stimulate the movement of blood and Qi so it is particularly good for pain that occurs when Chi or blood stagnates. It has been especially popular in gynecology for menstrual cramps and is used to heal bruises more quickly.
Stimulates Acupuncture Points: Moxa is also used to stimulate certain points, such as the point on the little toe that helps turn the breech baby. It can be applied for certain points on the body, such as the spot on the navel, which helps with some digestive ailments.
Builds Qi and Blood: Moxa therapy has been shown to increase immune function, specifically increasing white blood cell counts, anti-inflammatory cytokines, and anti-body production. In addition to improving your immunity and helping you when you feel exhausted, it has been proven to be particularly helpful in treating diseases where the immune system is compromised and can help people prone to getting sick.
Aside from its health benefits, many people find moxa burning extremely relaxing. Its warmth and scent create a feeling of deep relaxation in the treatment room.
