Moxibustion Therapy


Moxibustion Therapy: A Clinical Perspective on Integrative Healing

At Atlantic Acupuncture, our approach to patient care is inherently holistic, often incorporating a synergistic combination of acupuncture and moxibustion within a single clinical session when deemed beneficial.

This integrative methodology not only enhances therapeutic outcomes but also leverages the distinct advantages of each treatment modality to complement one another.

Clinical Insights into Moxibustion:

Moxibustion is a traditional heat therapy esteemed in Chinese Medicine, characterized by the application of smoldering dried mugwort (moxa or Aì yè) on or near the skin at specific acupuncture points. This practice is scientifically recognized for its ability to:

Stimulate circulation and enhance blood flow.

Promote lymphatic drainage.

Regulate Qi (vital energy) and blood within the body, ensuring optimal energetic balance.

Provide a natural defense against pathogenic factors.

Patients often report the unique aroma of burning moxa as an additional element of the therapeutic experience, offering a sense of calm and wellbeing.

Targeted Health Benefits of Moxibustion:

Our clinical application of moxibustion therapy addresses a wide spectrum of health concerns, including but not limited to:

Management and relief of arthritic pain.

Alleviation of sensations of chronic coldness.

Improvement in digestive system functionality.

Support in fertility and treatment of infertility issues.

Acceleration of the healing process for injuries.

Comprehensive pain management strategies.

Reduction of fatigue, particularly in the lower extremities.

Correction of breech presentation in pregnancy.

Treatment of gynecological and menstrual disorders.

Relief from headaches and migraines.
