Moxa Gout Treatment
Moxibustion as a Gout Treatment
We use mini moxa (with smoke) for our moxa gout treatments.
The treatment involves the burning of mugwort.
Targeted effects are:
Increase of local blood flow (treating gout)
Activate Acupuncture Points.
At The Gout Clinic, we use only non-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.
