The burning of moxa expels cold and warms the body leading to smoother qi and blood flow. Moxibustion is used to reduce arthritis pain, bronchial asthma, digestive issues, menstrual cramps, as well as to improve the general well-being and immune system of the patient. These moxa rolls are cylindrical rolls that can even penetrate head into acupoints effectively without soot and smoke.
- 5 individually sealed rolls per box
Approximately 13 cm long and 1.6 cm diameter.
Light one end of the moxa roll and rotate slowly in the flame to get an even burn and glow. Point the lit end towards the area suggested by your practitioner and allow it to come within a few centimeters of the skin, moving it regularly so to avoid burning the skin. Small circular movements with small pecking motions every few seconds is the best way to do this. You should feel the warmth spreading in the area being treated. If it gets too hot, move the moxa stick further from the skin or stop for a few seconds. Treatment is generally 5 to 10 minutes but follow the directions of your practitioner. To put the moxa roll out, stick or cover the burning end with dirt or sand and make sure it's completely out, thereby saving your moxa roll for another session if there is enough left.
