Moxa is a dried and processed form of mugwort. The best quality moxa comes from Japan. There are various techniques and uses for moxa that assist the body to warm, circulate and move the vital fluids, heal and adapt. It has fumigative and clearing properties, similiar to white sage. As smell is processed in the brain by the olfactory bulb which is part of the limbic system, the response to moxa is often one of deep familiarity and can access memory, both our own and those of our forebears. In Eastern medicine this can sometimes be referred to as accessing 'ancestoral qi'.


Guasha & Cupping

Gua Sha is a healing technique used throughout the world. 'Gua' means to rub or friction. 'Sha' is the term used to describe congestion of blood at the surface of the body. When friction is applied in repeated even strokes, it moves stuck blood, promoting normal circulation to the muscles, tissues, and organs directly beneath the surface treated. The patient experiences immediate changes in stiffness, pain and mobility. Normal metabolic processes are restored by the movement of fluids as nutrients are carried to the tissues and metabolic wastes are carried away.

Cupping in the modern clinic involves the application of glass cups which apply suction to the surface of the body. The suction creates a partial vacuum inside the cup which draws skin and flesh up, stimulating blood flow and the underlying tissue. The primary use of cupping has been for conditions of blood stasis, where the circulation and flow of blood is impaired either in a local area or within the body as a whole. A gentle and effective technique, it is well tolerated by children, the elderly and those rehabilitating or with compromised immunity, and can be used with those of a robust constitution as well.
