Moxibustion

Fayetteville, AR Acupuncture Moxibustion involves the heating of acupuncture points with smoldering mugwort herb (known as moxa). Moxibustion stimulates circulation, counteracts cold and dampness in the body, and promotes the smooth flow of blood and qi. This safe, non-invasive technique may be used alone, but it is generally used in conjunction with acupuncture treatment.

Moxibustion may be most well-known in the U.S. for turning breech babies. This technique can be taught to the parents and used at home. It usually takes several sessions of burning the moxa on specific points before the baby will stay head-down. Make an appointment to learn how to use moxa to help turn your breech baby.

to cultivate and balance qi. The practice involves rhythmic movement, focused breathing, and concentrated awareness. Qi gong is a safe and gentle meditative exercise that promotes healing of the mind and body.

Essential Oils

Essential oils have been used around the world for thousands of years. The essential oil is the lifeblood of the plant and can be used in a variety of ways: inhaling (aromatherapy), topically, and a few can be taken internally.

Because of the low incidence of side effects when using most essential oils, they are especially great for younger patients or those patients who are on multiple prescription medications or have weak digestion and can not tolerate herbal formulas.
