What is moxibustion treatment?
The Moxibustion treatment involves burning specific herbs in order to promote healing. The purpose is to strengthen the blood, stimulate the flow of Qi, and maintain general health. Sophie uses different types of moxibustion therapies, including direct moxa and indirect moxa, otherwise known as Kyotoshin.
The Japanese developed an exclusive moxibustion therapy that involved burning tiny ‘threads’ of moxa directly on acupuncture points without burning or scarring the skin. This technique uses a specially refined moxa that burns at a relatively low temperature, so it is safe and transmits a pure quality of heat into the acupuncture point.
