Moxa is used to strengthen the immune system, to warm the body and to bring more qi and blood flow to an area. Moxa is especially
useful for the treatment of pain. Moxa is often cited for its effectiveness in turning breach babies.
Moxa is used both directly and indirectly, depending upon the intended effects. It is used to great effect in tandem with acupuncture points, enhancing and maximizing the effects of the acupuncture needles. In this case a small ball is rolled and place on the head an acupuncture needle and ignited. It burns for about 20-30 seconds until it extinguishes. This is repeated for a prescribed number of times.
Moxa is yang, which corresponds to heat. Therefore we use moxibustion to treat illnesses where there is a yang deficiency, or excess yin, such as certain types of cold or flu, or joint pain brought on by cold weather.
Because it is yang, moxa must never be used to treat illnesses where there is excess heat, such as hot fevers.
But moxa’s yang nature isn’t its only clinical property. Breathing in moxa’s distinctive smell – which most people find delicious – has the effect of regulating your chi and blood, plus warming and removing damp from your meridians.
