10 Health Benefits of Moxa Therapy

Moxa Therapy (Moxibustion) stimulates blood circulation and triggers the body’s natural healing response. A skilled acupuncturist can target specific points on the body (that may or may not correspond with acupoints) and apply the heat from moxibustion to bring about a biochemical response. In addition, warming certain points with the slow heat from the burning moxa produces a heat that can treat sore muscles. 




Health benefits of moxibustion can include:

  1. Stimulating circulation and improving the flow of qi
  2. Expelling cold and dampness from the body (“warming the meridians”) to relieve back pain and pain from arthritis and menstrual camping
  3. Improving female health issues such as menstrual irregularity, infertility, and breech pregnancy
  4. Relieving male health problems such as impotence and poor sperm quality
  5. Increasing resistance to cold and flu; this is especially helpful for patients who tend to frequently suffer from contagious viruses that circulate in winter
  6. Stimulating the immune system to fight more serious illnesses and to keep the body healthy
  7. Regulating the digestive system to relieve constipation and chronic diarrhea
  8. Reducing numbness in the fingers and toes
  9. Reducing the risk of developing blood clots
  10. Easing anxiety disorders and certain symptoms of depression
