Moxibustion Acupuncture Perth

Role Of Moxibustion In Acupuncture Perth

Moxibustion practiced at Acupuncture Perth, is a traditional Chinese medicine technique that involves the burning of mugwort, a small, spongy herb, for promoting the process of healing with acupuncture. The purpose of Moxibustion in Acupuncture, as with most forms of Chinese medicine, is to provide a major boost to the blood circulation thereby strengthening it, stimulate the flow of qi, and maintain overall health.

Moxibustion is applied on people experiencing cold or stagnant condition. The practice of moxibustion expels cold and warms the meridians resulting in smoother flow of blood and qi. In Western medicine, moxibustion has been put to use to turn breech babies into a normal head-down position prior to childbirth.

How does Moxibustion in Acupuncture Perth work?

Moxibustion are of two kinds: direct and indirect. In direct moxibustion carried out at Acupuncture Perth, a small, cone-shaped amount of moxa is placed on top of an acupuncture point and burned. Broken down further, direct moxibustion can either be scarring or non-scarring. In scarring Moxibustion in Acupuncture, the moxa tends to burn on acupuncture point until it does out completely. In non-scarring moxibustion at Acupuncture Perth, the moxa is placed on the point and lit, but is extinguished or removed before burning the skin. Patients undergoing moxibustion at Acupuncture Perth, experience a pleasant heating sensation penetrating deep into the skin, but should not feel any pain, blistering or scarring unless and until the moxa is left in place for longer duration of time.

Indirect moxibustion practiced at Acupuncture Perth is the most popular form of moxibustion as it comes with a lower risk for pain or burning sensation. In indirect moxibustion, certified and experienced practitioner working at Acupuncture Perth, lights one end of a moxa stick and holds it close to the treatment area for few minutes until there is redness visible in the area. Another form of indirect moxibustion applies both acupuncture needles as well as moxa. A needle is inserted into an acupoint and retained. The tip of the needle used in Moxibustion in Acupuncture, is then wrapped in moxa and ignited creating and generating heat in the point and the surrounding area. Once the person feels relieved, the moxa is then extinguished, the needle is taken out.
