The Beauty of Moxibustion
“Never go on a long trip with someone who doesn’t burn moxa at ST36”.
~ Japanese proverb
In a damp, cold climate like Portland, moxibustion can be one of the most beneficial therapies available. Its drying, warming, and moving heat effectively counteracts the influence of cold and damp on or in the body. There are many forms of moxibustion, direct and indirect. Each application provides a unique strength for promoting healing.
Studies in Japan show that regular moxibution increases white blood cell counts, thereby enhancing immunity. It's also excellent as a home therapy, especially for the treatment of stubborn osteoarthritis pain, chronic fatigue and immune enhancement. Often the consistent use of moxibusion resolves previously unchanging conditions.
