Moxibustion – What Can It Do For Your Health?

Moxibustion is an essential part of Oriental medicine, which includes traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) as well as Japanese medicine. Moxibustion is an ancient heat treatment, which complements acupuncture and herbal medicine.

Moxibustion involves the burning of mugwort, a particular tinder of dried herbs, on or near the skin to facilitate healing. It has been used throughout Asia for more than 3,000 years and was first practised in cold climates to generate warmth for the body and to reduce pain. The purpose of moxibustion, as with most forms of Traditional Oriental medicine, is to build and strengthen Blood, improve circulation by stimulating the flow of Qi (energy) and obtain or maintain health.

Ondol Oriental Medicine Clinic is a holistic medical practice based in Toowong Brisbane, Australia.
