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.
