Moxibustion

In Saskatoon With

Dr. Xin Zhong

Moxibustion is a form of heat therapy in which dried plant materials called "moxa" are burned on or very near the surface of the skin. The intention is to warm and invigorate the flow of Qi in the body and dispel certain pathogenic influences.

Moxa is usually made from the dried leafy material of Chinese mugwort (Artemesia argyi or A.vlugaris), but it can be made of other substances as well.

When is moxibustion used?

Moxibustion is used for:

  • Pain due to injury or arthritis, especially in "cold" patterns where the pain naturally feels better with the application of heat

  • Digestive problems and irregular elimination

  • Gynecological and obstetrical conditions, including breech presentation in late-term pregnancy

  • Protection against cold and flu strains

Dr. Xin Zhong often does both acupuncture and moxibustion in the same clinic session when appropriate to the diagnosis and treatment strategy. Dr. Xin Zhong believes that the therapies increase each other's effectiveness when used together.
