Moxibustion for Gout
Moxa Gout Treatment
We use mini moxa for our moxa gout treatments.
The treatment involves the burning of mugwort.
Targeted effects are:
Increase of local blood flow (which is a goal for healing gout)
Activate acupuncture points.
At The Gout Clinic, we use only non-scarring moxibustion (unless the patient specifically requests the more efficient scarring moxibustion). We place the mini moxa on its location and extinguish it or remove it before it burns the skin. The patient will experience a pleasant heating sensation that penetrates deep into the skin, but should not experience any pain, blistering or scarring.
