Moxibustion and how this treatment can help
- Written by Louise Stevens
Have you heard of Moxibustion? The herb Artemesia mugwort is ignited and used either on top of needles or next to the skin to warm acu-points. Its use and functions are far reaching.
It can expel cold from the body, like in arthritic conditions or reynauds (white finger).
It warms the uterus in infertility.
It encourages circulation and therefore reduces pain.
It is the treatment of choice to turn breech babies.
It is used as an emergency stop bleeding point, e.g. Dysfunctional uterine bleeding.
