Pure moxa rolls are made from Ai Ye (dried mugwort) that has a moisture content of less than 13%. This percentage is important, because it ensures that the rolls will burn evenly and without sparks, while ensuring that it isn’t so dry that it loses any of its therapeutic effects. Mugwort only reaches this perfect balance after being stored in a dry environment for five years.
The rolls are tightly wrapped in a finely textured paper that burns at the same rate as the mugwort, making them easy to manipulate. These moxa rolls can be used with acupuncture needles, as well as for indirect moxa heat treatment. Compared to moxa rolls that have been aged for less than five years, these rolls produce a mellower, subtler smoke, and a more penetrating heat.
In traditional Chinese medicine, moxibustion is a heating technique that warms the meridians and strengthens the blood. Moxa is therefore typically used on patients with cold or stagnant conditions. Burning moxa rolls near specific points of the body is an efficient way to expel cold, increase circulation, boost immunity and maintain general health. Since the heat from moxa rolls can reach deep inside of the body, moxibustion is also used to treat conditions that do not respond to acupuncture.
Outside of TCM, moxa sticks are sometimes also used for heat therapy, and to alleviate muscle and joint pains.
Light the moxa roll slowly, using a torch until the entire surface of the end is glowing evenly. Conventional lighters can make this more difficult, and lighting the stick unevenly will make the sticks harder to use.
Once the moxa roll is fully lit, hold it like a pen and gently move it around the areas suggested by your practitioner. Keep the moxa roll about 1-2 inches over the skin surface and remove it before it gets too hot.
As the moxa stick burns, ash will collect on the tip, blocking the heat. You need to gently scrape the end of the moxa roll on the edge of a dish or ashtray to remove the ash. This process needs to be repeated several times during a moxibustion; otherwise, the hot ash could drop off onto the skin.
After the treatment, you can use a moxa extinguisher to put off the burnings roll in 5 seconds. Water will also work, but too much water may cause the moxa roll to weaken or crack.
- Moxibustion should always be administered and used under the supervision of a qualified practitioner.
- Remove moxa immediately if the heat becomes uncomfortable.
- Do not use moxa on the face, soft skin, or other sensitive body areas.
- Do not use moxa on infants or young children. Do not use moxa on patients who are not able to accurately report heat or pain (i.e. elderly, patients with nerve damage, etc).
