Moxa and Topical Liniments
We offer several non-needle treatments promoting health and pain relief.
Dating back in use several thousand years, moxa is the use of dried mugwort leaves (Artemesia vulgaris) on acupuncture points or larger areas of the body. As moxa burns very hot, at nearly 700 degree F, it warms and invigorates the qi, and brings vitality and strength. Moxa is often used in combination with acupuncture and acupressure treatments.
In addition to being taken internally, specially prepared herbal formulas can also be applied topically. Often used for skin conditions and arthritic and other kinds of pain, liniments are used in conjunction with other therapies to direct the healing process to particular parts of the body and maximize its effectiveness.
