Moxibustion is a form of heat therapy, originating from China, in which dried plant materials called "moxa" are burned 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. It adds energy into the body so is very supportive for chronic conditions. It also supports hormone issues like infertility and menopause.

Moxa is usually made from the dried leafy material of Chinese mugwort (Artemesia argyi or A.vlugaris), but it can be made of other substances as well.

I use indirect Moxa where acupressure points and reflexes are warmed with the Moxa stick. It is a very safe and effective treatment. It is also claimed to boost immunity and is perfect during the Autumn and winter months when the weather is chilly.

Moxibustion can be booked as a 30 minute stand alone treatment or if you would like it as a shorter add-on to your reflexology treatment then this can be arranged for a minimal charge
