Herbal medicine for anxiety treatment in Toronto


What is Moxibustion?

Moxibustion is a form of therapy that involves burning mugwort leaves.

This is a small, spongy herb that is believed to improve healing with acupuncture. The leaves are burned near the skin’s surface with a stick to impart heat.

According to Chinese medicine, increasing Qi circulation can assist your body in dealing with a variety of issues, including digestive issues and chronic discomfort.

Moxibustion is traditionally believed to further stimulate the flow of vital life energy (qi), strengthen the blood and facilitate its circulation, and improve the patient’s general sense of wellbeing and health.

How Moxibustion Works

Moxibustion is performed by our qualified acupuncturists. Moxa can be applied to the body directly, on top of an acupuncture needle, or from a distance using a moxa stick. It produces a pleasant and warming sensation, and is often used to enhance the effect of acupuncture treatments.

The procedure warms specific areas of the body known as meridian points, which are identical to acupuncture points in concept. Acupoints are heated by burning compressed powdered herbal substance. The goal is to increase circulation and allow blood to flow more easily. Warmth, according to ancient Chinese ideas, compensates for the “yang deficiency” that causes cold and other problems in a person’s body.
