FAQ

What is acupuncture?  

According to tradition, some 5,000 years ago the Chinese noticed that pain could be relieved when they rubbed stones against their bodies. It was also discovered that some soldiers, wounded by arrows, recovered from long-suffered illnesses. This collection of ideas led to the principle that needles inserted into various points of the body, when manipulated, could treat many diseases and benefit patients with a wide variety of pains and ailments. This can be said to be the beginning of acupuncture.                


What is Moxibustion (Moxa)?

3,000 years ago in China, moxa was started as a heating therapy by one of the Asian traditional medicines. Moxa is made of a dried fluff of mugwort, which is in rich in essential oils; cineole and eucalyptus. Practitioners use moxa to stimulate an acupuncture point by heat, and improve the patient’s self-healing power and physiology.

Moxa takes root in Asian life style, especially in Japan. The word “moxa” comes from Japanese mogusa. Yomogi (means mugwort) also serves as a synonym for moxa in Japan. We can see a moxa kit in drug stores as everybody can use it easily at home. They use yomogi to make a Japanese seasonal sweet cake (Kusa Mochi), also eat yomogi as Tempura. Yomogi, as eating, is included oleic acid, linoleic acid, Vitamin A, B1, and B2. In spring, Japanese moms ask their kids to get Yomogi from a field or a hill, and they cook the sweet cake for the family. That is a great memory personally.

Why Moxa?

  • AnalgesicMoxa stimulates adrenal gland as homeostasis, and secretes anti-inflammatory hormone, such as cortisone. It is especially good for severe pain caused by smooth muscle spasm of internal organs, cramp as PMS, and skeletal muscle tension such as shoulders, neck, and low back pain.
  • Promote Blood CirculationMoxa warms your body and blood vessel, which promote blood circulation, helps detoxication, regulates blood pressure and hormonal balance, and improves bad circulation.
  • Improve Immune SystemSome medical researches show that white blood cell count and T-cell count rise after moxa, which plays an important role in individual immune system. Moxa is good for those who have weakened or imbalanced immune system, from cancer, HIV/AIDS, diabetes, allergy, asthma, chronic fatigue, and all other chronic disease.
