Moxibustion Explained by Our NYC Acupuncturist

MOXIBUSTION and HEAT LAMPS are used to warm regions and points on the body with the intention of stimulating circulation through the acupuncture points and inducing a smoother flow of Blood and Qi or energy. Moxibustion is a traditional Chinese medicine technique that involves the burning of mugwort, a small, spongy herb, over specific acupuncture points to facilitate healing.

The purpose of moxibustion is to strengthen the Blood, stimulate the flow of Qi or energy, and maintain or improve general health. Often the moxa is molded into a small cone and placed on an acupuncture needle. Or it is rolled into a cigar shape called a moxa stick and passed over the skin in a wave-like motion or positioned close to the area being treated until the area turns red.

The heat produced by moxibustion penetrates deep into the body’s tissues to increase circulation, reduce pain, and restore balance. Moxibustion is indicated for people who have cold or stagnant conditions. It warms the meridians and expels cold resulting in a smoother flow of Qi and Blood. Moxibustion and acupuncture are often combined to restore general health and treat chronic health problems such as arthritis, pain, infertility, digestive disorders, and many other health concerns.Burning moxa produces a lot of smoke and a pungent odor. For patients with respiratory problems, smokeless moxa sticks can be used as an alternative. To learn more about moxibustion call us today at 917-525-5199 or make an appointment online!
