Moxibustion and acupuncture for treating knee pain

Moxibustion

 Smokeless moxa 

 

What Is Moxibustion?​

 

Moxibustion is a type of TCM therapy that involves the burning of moxa made from dried mugwort to facilitate healing. It shares the same principle and theory as acupuncture, and certain acu-points will be selected for moxibustion. There are many forms of moxa, such as moxa cone, moxa roll, moxa box and stick-on moxa.  

 

A Moxibustion Session With Us

 

At MacPherson TCM & Wellness Clinic, we use smokeless moxa roll to perform indirect moxibustion. It is the safest procedure which will not cause pain, scars or blisters. Moxibustion is particularly useful in treating breech presentation, anaemia during pregnancy, certain types of menstrual cramps, as it expels cold evils and warms the yang energy in our body. Most of the time, moxibustion is used in conjunction with acupuncture.
