Effective Healing using Moxibustion in Richmond Hill, ON

Moxibustion is a therapeutic method used in traditional Chinese medicine. It is a form of heat therapy in which ‘moxa’ or dried plant material is burned on the surface of the skin. Mugwort, a small spongy herb is burned to warm and invigorate the energy flow of the body.

Moxibustion is recommended for people with various health conditions. It strengthens the blood circulation, stimulates the energy flow of the body, and activates the natural healing mechanism. It is an effective way to improve your overall health and well-being.

Moxibustion is used before childbirth in pregnant women to turn the baby into a head-down position. It is advised during pregnancy as it improves the blood circulation of the mother and the baby. It is an ideal treatment for cold weather as it warms up the body. It is effective in health conditions like:

  • Pain in the lower back, muscles, joints, knees, etc.
  • Migraine and headache
  • Stiffness, muscle knots, or inflammation in the body
  • Flu and uneasiness during cold weather
