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 experiencing chronic tension headaches for a a few months and I had to take ibuprofen multiple times a day to function and not be miserable. All that ibuprofen is not a good idea and I asked my primary care doctor for an acupuncture referral. I started receiving treatments from Maya and I was surprised how effective the treatments were. I started seeing a huge improvement after a few visits and now my headaches are pretty much resolved. In addition to the needles, she also tackled my problem with other methods like cupping and rapid release therapy. This is my first time receiving acupuncture treatments and Maya was fantastic in explaining everything very thoroughly and putting me at ease. She has great energy, cares about her patients and I would refer my own mother to her.

Maya is very friendly and flexible. She successfully treated my painful sciatica that had interfered with my jogging for years. Maya has the professional knowledge and technical skills to treat whatever ails you. I say this with authority because I personally studied acupuncture and tui na/massage when I lived in China.

I’ve been struggling with plantar fasciitis for a few years. After just one treatment I’ve had great results. I’m amazing at how my heals feel. Thank you Maya

Maya was recommended to me from my coworker and I am proving she is amazing in what she does. I have been suffering sleep apnea and arthritis. She helped me with both. I feel now much better than before. I am not using anymore my sleeping machine and my knees are way to much mobile. Maya is very good in listening to her patients and figuring out what kind of treatment they need. She is very nice person to talk with. I highly recommend her services to everyone who need acupuncture.

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.
