Moxibustion at Yaa Healthcare

Moxibustion Therapy Centres in Chennai

To put it simply, moxibustion is a form of heat therapy. We at Yaa Healthcare being one of the most renowned moxibustion therapy centres in Chennai always use dried plant materials called “moxa”. The moxa we use is made from the finest dried leafy material of Chinese mugwort (Artemisia Vulgaris), but some other substitutes are used too based on the ailment the patient has. Our expert starts by burning this Moxa very near the surface of the skin. The intention is to warm and invigorate the flow of Qi in the body and dispel certain pathogenic influences. You can always learn more about the best practices for moxibustion treatment in Chennai right here at Yaa Healthcare with us.

What exactly does our expert do?

Things at Yaa Healthcare are overtaken by our lead practitioner – Dr. Yusuf. He generally starts by holding a burning moxa stick close to, but not touching, the surface of the skin. Our usual method involves compressing the moxa material into a stick or pole. This incense like cigar is then fired up and allowed to smolder. But its own property, the Moxa burns at a warming high temperature exuding a very penetrating heat. Our expert then holds the smoldering moxa stick over specific areas, often, though not always, corresponding to certain acupuncture points. The burning end of the moxa stick is held about an inch or two above the surface of the skin until the area reddens and becomes suffused with warmth.

What can I expect to feel?

The first thing that you can feel while receiving moxibustion is the sudden flooding of warmth that radiates along a specific path. This path corresponds with the Jing Luo channel that is being treated away from the site of application. Consider this warmth as a good sign as it indicates the arrival of the Qi and signals that the flow of Qi and Xue has been freed in the channel.

You can go for both acupuncture and moxibustion in the same clinic session with us at Yaa Healthcare. With this, our experts can devise a diagnosis and treatment strategy. Dr. Yusuf believes that the therapies increase each other’s effectiveness when used together.

One of the importing things while considering Moxibustion is that unlike acupuncture, which is almost always done by a trained practitioner in a clinic setting, moxibustion can be easily used at home. Our experts can impart the ancient Chinese traditions and train their patients to use moxa on themselves to strengthen the effect of the clinical sessions between appointments.
