What Does Moxa Treat?

Moxibustion will increase blood flow and assist the lymphatic system to move and eliminate unwanted waste products.  The increase in blood flow also assists the body to heal faster and relax the muscles and tissues.  The heat emanated is helpful for those who suffer from lack of circulation and arthritis.  The patients that benefit most from moxibustion are those who notice pain is worse with cold or damp-cold environments.  I have found patients with knee pain, shoulder, ankle and other joint pains benefit from this therapy.  Moxibustion is also beneficial in treating certain digestive disorders, including, diarrhea constipation and bloating. It reduces pain from PMS.  Moxibustion can also boost immunity and help warm up specific points in the body that assist in warming core temperature for those who tend to have a cold predisposition.

I was dealing with a high level of stress/anxiety (burnout) so I was experiencing a lot of physical symptoms. Thankfully, I was referred to Maya. She is a great acupuncturist. I felt well taking care of, Maya has a welcoming professional approach. Always checking in to see how you are progressing. If you are new to acupuncture I definitely recommend you to start here, because Maya has a great way of explaining how acupuncture can help, which helps you understand that you might not feel a difference after the first few session. Thank you Maya for Sharing your knowledge. And being such an awesome human being.

Maya worked wonders on my neck and hands. I suffer from arthritis and the treatments she gave me helped so very much. I was having great difficulty sleeping due to the pain I was suffering from and the treatments have helped. I still have some discomfort in my hands but much less and my neck feels so much better. I sleep comfortably and have fewer headaches. Thank you Maya.

Maya’s calm and professional nature instills confidence. With her athletic background and superior knowledge of anatomy, she was able to quickly and precisely diagnose and treat my chronic sports injury - biceps tendinitis. She has a genuine desire to heal her patients.
