Moxibustion (moxa) is both a noun and an adjective. It describes a heat therapy where mugwort, a wool like herb also known as moxa, is burned on or near the skin. This process invigorates the flow of Qi and has been used in China for disease prevention, promoting longevity and is traditionally used for many other health conditions.

At Balance Acupuncture Brisbane, Louise uses raw moxa and smokeless moxa as part of her treatment strategy. Moxa can be done at home. It is easy to learn how to use a moxa stick and Louise can show you the appropriate points for your condition, allowing you to perform daily treatments at home. This can be a great way to, not only continue your treatment outside our practise, but to take responsibility for the healing of your body.
