acupuncture with a modern approach

Senior Acupuncturist & BAcC Member since 1999


Moxibustion involves the slow burning of a herb (Mugwort) on the handle of the needle to introduce heat directly into the acupuncture point. Alternatively, moxa can be burnt as a small cigar-shaped bundle held above the skin in the area of the point. The heat of moxa helps to relieve discomfort and pain in muscles and joints and to reinforce the effect of the chosen acupuncture points and is not intense enough to burn of course!
