Kumo's Services - Moxa Therapy

Though typically integrated into an acupuncture treatment there are times when moxa therapy can be given independently. You may choose to have moxa therapy if you are too needle sensitive, you respond better to heat therapy, or simply because you prefer moxa.

Moxa is fiber from the mugwart plant that can be processed in several different ways but ultimately is burnt near the skin for a soothing and penetrating heat therapy. A change of clothes should be brought or one should not have any plans after a moxa therapy session because of the pungent smell of the burning mugwart. The session is typically about an hour and begins with a detailed interview.
