Features of the procedure of moxotherapy
Eastern medicine for several millennia uses in the process of treating various ills of knowledge about the structure and characteristics of the human body. Particular attention is paid to the interaction of active points located on the surface of the skin with internal organs.
Today we will tell you about a unique procedure called "moxotherapy", which is one of the main healers in Tibet.
Get rid of the disease, and even rejuvenate
The name of the procedure comes from the "tool" with which it is carried out - moxa. What is this? It is a cigar made from healing herbs. The main is wormwood. In addition to its healing properties, it exudes smoke with a special smell, which, according to residents of Eastern countries, drives away evil spirits. Juniper, mint, cumin and many others can also be used.
One of the main rules in the process of making moxa is their size. In order to properly act on the acupuncture points on the back, the thickness of the cigars must be equal to the thickness of the index finger, and for the chest and hands - the little finger. Harvest moxibles in late summer, twisting them in the form of a cone.
Types of procedure
Moxotherapy is contact and contactless. In the first case, the heating takes place through a thin plate made of garlic or ginger. The heat effect is stronger, and the patient may even feel a point heat.
The non-contact method is safer, since it is carried out at a distance of several centimeters from the skin. A more complex option involves the use of needles and moxa. The needle is injected into the active point, and at its end a cigar is installed for a few minutes. Heat enters a specific area, and after it begins to blush, the session ends.
