Moxibustion is a very popular therapy in Singapore. It is aimed at dispelling cold, dampness, wind from the body, stimulating the flow of the qi energy channels, strengthening the blood, improving and maintaining general well-being.
Mugwort, made into smokeless cigar-like moxa sticks, is used in the therapy. Mugwort is also known as Artemisia vulgaris or ai ye in Chinese.
The moxa stick is held three centimetres above the acupuncture point for certain duration of time to allow the heat sensation to penetrate and circulate into the meridian. Special attention and concentration are required to ensure the client feels warm, comfortable and relax during the therapy.
According to the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) theory, meridians and collaterals or pathways create the flow of qi and blood circulation, crucial parts of a specific network that communicates with the limbs and internal organs and connects the upper body to the lower regions.
