What is Moxa Therapy, or Moxibustion?

Moxa therapy, or moxibustion, is an ancient form of treatment that involves burning moxa (dried, ground mugwort leaves compacted in a cone or stick) on or near the acupressure points and meridians (lines connecting acupressure points). You may also hear moxibustion referred to as ‘heat therapy’.


The therapist lights the moxa and holds it about an inch from the skin, letting it warm up the surface of the skin slowly until the area becomes quite warm to touch. Once you feel the heat, the therapist removes the moxa from the points and will stimulate the next point.


Here at Intertreat Health, we specialise in providing moxa therapy or heat therapy as a way of improving your overall health. Get in touch with us today to book your appointment.

Infrared Heat Treatment for Invigorating The Energy

How does Heat Therapy work?


By using heat, moxibustion works to improve circulation and blood flow in your body. The heat from the herb helps stimulate the selected points and improves the flow of Qi (energy) and removes the blockages in your body. This promotes relaxation by warming the body. It also helps to boost your immunity and keep your body strong for better overall health.


At Intertreat Health, we provide a range of holistic health therapies that are designed to improve your overall health and quality of life. Find out more about our unique 3-step approach today.

Discover the Benefits of Moxibustion


Moxibustion acupuncture comes with all kinds of benefits for better wellbeing. This form of therapeutic heat therapy has been practiced in Chinese medicine for centuries, with great results.


One of the key benefits of moxibustion is its ability to alleviate a variety of internal and physical health issues. For example, this includes gastrointestinal problems, joint and muscle pain, and chronic pain conditions. 

In particular, moxa therapy is commonly performed on people who are generally in deficient and chronic condition (虚症) to promote yang (vibrant) energy to nourish your overall health. Additionally, moxibustion is believed to help prevent colds and flu by boosting the immune system. 

Overall, moxibustion is carefully applied through considering each person's different body characteristics after consultation with our therapist. Discover the benefits for yourself and book an appointment with us today.
