Guidelines for using Moxa
Moxa is a plan that is used as a heat source to stimulate acupuncture points. Although acupuncture is better known in the West, moxibustion has also been used in traditional treatments for over 2000 years in China and is in fact the second part of the name for acupuncture in the Chinese language. The moxa we usually provide as part of our treatments is in the form of a moxa stick and has been compressed into a cigar-like roll that makes it ideal for use at home.
How to use the moxa stick
Simply light one end with a cigarette lighter. When the stick is correctly lit, you will be able to hold the lit end two to three centimeters from the back of your hand and feel a pleasant radiating warmth.
Hold the lit end of the stick over the area to be treated, maintaining a distance of at least two to three centimeters so that there is never any direct contact with the skin.
The moxa stick is then moved slowly over the area being treated, this will begin to feel pleasantly warm.
To enhance your fertility, here is a general easy move you can do to yourself: Place the stick close to your navel and move it down to your pubic bone. Repeat the movement slowly up and down, until the area is pink and warm. This therapy should be done daily to increase your results. There are other ways and areas to apply moxa to enhance your fertility, but those would depend on your specific case and condition.
