Moxa Gout Treatment

Moxa burning as a gout treatment on the big toe.

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.
