There is no big secret about Chinese Medicine. Great health is achieving by mastering the fundamental principle of balancing the five elements of our body!We got sick because of our bad habits, to get well, first stop repeating bad habits, then try to what is good for you, i.e. develop good habits!"Heaven and Earth are everlasting. The reason Heaven and Earth can last forever is that they do not exist for themselves. Thus they can last forever."  Tao Te ChingThe ancient Masters were profound and subtle. Their wisdom was unfathomable. There is no way to describe it; all we can describe is their appearance. Tao Te ChingThe Tao is like a well: used often, but never used up. It is like the eternal void: filled with infinite possibilities.

Possible reactions to moxibustion include soreness, numbness, pain, swelling, itchiness, dizziness and cold.

A simple analogy can help clarify this: when a pipe is blocked it will face some resistance, or expand when we want to clear it. Body vessels and channels are similar. When Yang chi encounters Yin negative chi there will be a struggle that might manifest in some of the sensations described above. If we have toxins or an area of inflammation, we will likely  feel discomfort. Itchiness is typically due to heavy moisture and heat; it’s a reaction to the release of damp heat. Women with a gynecological complaint may feel soreness in the abdomen. A gastritis patient will often have stomach pain. A person with damp cold in the intestines will feel the abdomen rumbling when the therapy is done on the navel. All these are positive responses showing that Yang chi has entered the body. Continue the moxibustion and these reactions will subside and the improvements to your body will start to become much clearer.
