                      ELEVATING THE VITAL ENERGY OF THE BODY    

 Hand acupuncture is a popular treatment used in my clinic on its own or alongside other modalities depending on your bodies needs on the day.

In Korea KHA it is encouraged and commonly used by people to look after their own health as it is primarily focused on elevating the vital energy of the body in the prevention and treatment of diseases.

The hand is believed to be a microcosm of the entire body, each part of the hand corresponding to a different part of the body.

KHA works well with Moxibustion 

Moxibustion is a technique that involves the burning of mugwort, known as moxa, which is an herb that facilitates healing. The purpose of moxibustion

is to stimulate the flow of Qi (pronounced “chee”), strengthen the blood and maintain general health. Qi is translated as life energy.

Moxibustion can be used for many reasons because it provides many benefits. The first benefit of moxibustion is it is warming to the body. Many people who have autoimmune diseases, low immunity and blood conditions are frequently cold. The warming properties of moxa make it a great choice for these types of conditions.

Moxa is also a good choice for those suffering from aches and pains. The warming properties of moxa has been shown increase blood flow by warming the blood.

Increased blood flow means increased oxygenation to the tissues, muscles and tendons that are sore.

Another benefit of utilizing moxibustion is increased immunity. Studies have shown moxibustion significantly increases the white blood cell count in the body, which is the major component of the immune system.

Moxa strengthens the immune system and helps re-balance autoimmune diseases.

Despite the fact moxibustion involves the burning of mugwort, it has been shown to be very beneficial for cooling areas of inflammation. This again

goes back to blood flow.  Moxa improves blood flow to areas of inflammation, while promoting the natural radiation function of the skin. This also works on chronic inflammation diseases like arthritis.

Consider follow up treatments approximately once a month to maintain the benefits.
