Service Description

Moxibustion is a healing technique entailing the burning of a moxa plant or herb near or over an acupuncture point to boost the flow of energy or Qi and blood to alleviate pain and accelerate the process of healing. Believed to originate in China around 500 BC, the treatment was designed to address chronic conditions on patients. Many alternative health practitioners find it extremely effective in treating knee arthritis and low back pain too. There are two types of Moxibustion Treatment. Direct and indirect. Adore Gaia Healing protocol uses indirect therapy. Using moxa pole, which is shaped like a cigar, the pole is burned and held from the skin an inch or two away. Above the acupoint, the pole’s burning tip is moved in motion (depending on which acupoint) until the treatment sites get a little warm and red. Our experienced therapist will allow the therapeutic effects of oils and heat from the moxa to go through the skin without burning the skin.
