Moxibustion (or ‘moxa’ for short) is the act of burning the herb Ai Ye (Artmesia Vulgaris, or mugwort) over specific acupuncture points. This process facilitates the movement of qi and blood and warms the body.  

Everyone loves moxa - even kids!  It feels good, warms you up, and helps boost your vital energy.

Moxibustion may be included with the cost of a follow-up visit depending on the condition we are treating.

Moxibustion is highly effective for:

  • Chronic Pain (especially back pain)
  • Chronic Colds & Flu
  • Arthritis
  • Asthma
  • Menstrual Pain
  • Infertility & Subfertility
  • Breech Presentation of Fetus
  • Fatigue
  • Digestive Problems
