TCM Moxibustion

艾灸

Moxibustion is a type of traditional Chinese medicine. It involves burning moxa, a cone or stick made of ground mugwort leaves, on or near your body’s meridians and acupuncture points.

The resulting heat helps stimulate these points and improves the flow of qi (energy) in your body. According to TCM, this increased qi circulation can help with a range of health issues, from chronic pain to digestive troubles.

Moxibustion can be applied directly or indirectly.

In direct moxibustion, the moxa cone rests on your body at the treatment point. The cone is lit and let to burn slowly until your skin begins to turn red. Once you begin to feel heat, we will remove it.

Indirect moxibustion is more commonly practiced. It’s also a safer option, since the burning moxa doesn’t actually touch your skin. Instead, we will hold it about an inch from your body and remove it once your skin becomes red and warm.

艾灸涉及在人体的经络或穴位上燃烧艾蒿。产生的热量有助于刺激并改善体内的气流动。中医认为这种气循环可以帮助解决一系列健康问题,从慢性疼痛到消化系统疾病。

艾灸锥体在治疗点停留在您的身体上。视锥细胞被点燃,让其缓慢燃烧,直到您的皮肤开始变红。燃烧的艾灸丝实际上并没有接触到您的皮肤。取而代之的是,我们将其保持在离您身体约一英寸的位置,并在皮肤变红变暖后将其移除。

“I’ve tried different sports injury management methods from sport massages to physio. Although these methods offered short-term relief, it didn't solve the root of my injury. After 3 sessions of conditioning, I was able to see great improvement in my injury strain.

我尝试了各种物理治疗。虽然短期能缓解我的疼痛,但每真正解决我受伤的根源。经过徐医师3个阶段的调理,我的伤有了很大的改善。

I've been visiting Dr. Xu for my eczema. I'm so glad and happy that my face is not peeling and arms are not itching as much as before! Backache treatment is also effective as I have poor posture.

关于我的湿疹,我很高兴我的脸没有像以前那样脱皮,手臂也没有发痒!由于我的姿势不好,腰疼治疗也很有效。
