Smoky or smokeless? What's the difference?

Smoky moxa leave a more intense smell can be used in an outdoor space. Can also be used indoors, but attention, leaves a very intense smell! It depends on one's sensitivity to odors.


The application of moxa with sagebrush promotes:

  • blood circulation
  • lymphatic circulation


What is the function of sagebrush?

Artemisia when burned in this process enhances the effect of heat.

Artemisia is used to promote tunification and dispersion at acupuncture points.


What is moxibustion?

  • Moxibustion is a type of thermal acupuncture, from Traditional Chinese Medicine, made by the combustion of the herb Artemisia sinensis and Artemisia vulgaris. The Chinese name - 灸 - jiŭ (pinyin) literally means long fire application time.
  • Moxa is based on the same principles and knowledge of acupuncture-powered energy meridians and is widely used in the traditional medicine systems of China, Japan, Korea, Vietnam, Tibet, and Mongolia.
  • Moxa's mode of action in disease prevention and treatment results from the application of heat to points and / or regions of the human body.


How do you prepare moxa?

Moxa is made up of herbs. The herb used in moxa is Artemisia. The leaves of Artemisia are washed, dried, crushed and sieved until they become a uniform mass, similar to a vegetable wool. This pasta is called moxa.

Once prepared, moxa can be molded in various ways for use: the most common are rod and cone.


At MIPMED you find moxa in the form of a stick (or cigar). Smoky or smokeless.


How does the treatment work scientifically?

  • Artemisia's combustion has the property of warming deeply. Applying the heat produced by moxa to acupuncture points or meridians removes energy blocks that block its flow through the meridians, eliminating moisture and cold that promote dysfunction in the body.
  • The effect of heat or infrared radiation can be added to the yang energy of the body enhancing this aspect (yang) of energy (chi) and can even be carried to its extreme, that is, the transformation into the opposite aspect of energy (yin).


Moxa vs Acupuncture

  • Although the concept of health-disease and treatment of moxibustion and acupuncture are essentially similar, moxa does not apply to all acupuncture points.
  • Simultaneous application of Moxa and Acupuncture is performed through the rod that acts as a cigar that should be approximated to the point to which energy is desired. The heat of the moxa stick can be conducted through the acupuncture needle, approaching the skin, or even burning the herb directly over the skin (in this case it may cause minor burn marks).
  • The moxa technique can be used alone or in combination with traditional acupuncture practices and wind therapy.


What is the origin of moxa or moxibustion?

  • Of ancient history, it originates from northern China.
  • There have been reports of use for over 3500 years BC.
  • According to Chinese tractional medicine reports, it is believed that moxa arose prior to acupuncture.
  • Eastern royal families resorted to moxibustion when they did not achieve acupuncture cure.
  • Moxibustion arrived in Japan around 265 AD at the hands of Japanese monks who studied the technique in China.


How does moxa work?

It is a noninvasive technique. Moxa is an extremely thin stick or cone that is wrinkled and molded by hand. Artemisia leaves are placed on the stick and the instrument is lit at the end.


What is the difference between direct application and direct application of moxa?

There are two forms of application: direct and indirect.

  • In the direct, the stick is placed lit very close to the skin, and should be one inch from it, or according to the resistance of the patient.
  • In the indirect, the therapist puts a slice of ginger, onion or garlic on the skin, makes five holes and applies the moxa to the slice. The practitioner can also apply acupuncture needles. Place a steel capsule (hat) on the tip of a needle. The moxa is on the flaps of this little hat.

The warmth of Artemisia leaves regulates the transit of vital energy through the body. Ling Shu, the basis of acupuncture, says, "When the blood in the vessels becomes stagnant or becomes blocked, it must be treated only by fire."


What are the therapeutic indications for moxa use?

Moxibustion improves the functioning of various organs. Immediately, the technique strengthens the heart and regulates blood pressure. In the long run, it improves the immune system and stimulates the brain. With the Chinese technique, it is possible to treat infertility, impotence, urinary incontinence, besides being used in aesthetic treatments.
