New In: Japanese Moxa

New moxa

We have expanded our moxibustion range and now stock premium quality Japanese moxa! We have chosen the highest quality products for those who practice moxibustion alongside acupuncture. We now sell CHOSEI-KYU Stick OnGold Mountain Moxa and Wakakusa Ibuki Moxa.

There are many different types of moxibustion, so practitioners have many choices in the application and form. Moxibustion is as old as acupuncture itself and is believed to have originated in China over 2,500 years ago.

It comes in many shapes and forms, and the type you choose is based on what area of the body you’re treating and what you are looking to accomplish. You can use:

  • Rolls: We have a variety of moxa rolls including smokeless, pre-cut, hollow, fine and stick-on. They can be burnt an inch or so over a large area or near a specific point.
  • Direct: Pure, wool-like moxa can be shaped and placed on specific acupuncture points. We have a variety of moxa that can be used directly, including Wakakusa and Gold Mountain.
  • Needle: Pure moxa can be rolled into a ball and placed on the end of a needle and burnt. The heat warms the surface of the skin and transfers through the needle deeper into the point.

When used effectively, moxibustion is a great addition to your treatment as it helps to increase blood circulation, tonify Qi, stimulation the digestive system and boost immune functions.
