Moxa

useful and so important for people's treatments that I often send my patients home with moxa poles, and instructions on how to use it themselves. Just by deeply warming certain points for a few minutes per day can do wonders for warming qi, increasing circulation and boosting immunity.

HOW IT WORKS

At the root of traditional Chinese medicine is the belief that the individual (microcosm) is viewed as an integral part of the forces of nature (macrocosm). By careful observation of nature, Taoist sages were able to perceive patterns common to both the external environment and the internal climate of the human body. Over a period of thousands of years, the cumulative observations of sages all over China led to an intricate system of diagnosis and healing.

Root Cause Diagnosis

Chinese Medicine tracks down the root cause of your health issues rather than treating the symptoms. By identifying key areas to watch carefully, you can begin to improve your health and body from the inside out.
