Moxibustion works by pushing the medicinal properties of moxa into the diseased tissue area through heat. The coldness dissipates, enabling the area’s circulation to increase. As the area slowly regains Yang chi, pain and other symptoms will naturally be alleviated and any inflammation is reduced.
Moxa is like the pure energy of the sun. On the one hand its heat disperses the cold, damp, and obscure areas, making the mind stable and clearing the meridians and blood channels. On the other hand, it is also nurturing and replenishes our Yang chi, thereby helping the body to strengthen its immunity so that it can cure the disease on its own.
