Moxa (Moxibustion)

Moxa/Moxibustion is a form of heat therapy. It involves warming or heating acupuncture points or areas of the body. The heat is able to penetrate deeply into the muscles and relaxes them.

Moxa promotes blood circulation and can greatly aid the healing process. It can be effective to treat chronic pain and other conditions. We will discuss the treatment in detail with you before undertaking it.

This heat treatment takes a number of different forms. It can be direct or indirect and may include the use of the herb mugwort or acupuncture needles.


In our clinic, we mainly use an electronic moxibustion treatment device that makes moxibustion more convenient and comfortable. The bottom of the device is made of a bio-ceramic material to stimulate heat deep into the skin. The device is smokeless and has minimal risk of burns as the treatment temperature and time can be set freely, which means a safe treatment experience even if you have sensitive skin or a respiratory condition.

We use Moxa in combination with other modalities to build synergy and bring about desired outcomes.
