Moxibustion for Weight Loss
Weight loss and Moxibustion
What is Moxibustion and how does it work?
Moxibustion is one of oldest treatment methods of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and it has been used for over 3,000 years. This ancient therapy consists of burning carefully refined Moxa, made from dried mugwort on key points, all part of an interconnected network that spans your entire body called the Meridian System. The warming and invigorating sensation on the skin helps your blood circulation and natural energy (Qi) flow, as well as dispelling any pathogenic elements.
How does Moxibustion help weight loss?
When energy is flowing freely through your body your spleen, kidneys and liver can all function at their maximum capacity.
Each one is important to weight loss:
Spleen – When your spleen has the energy it needs your metabolism will return to normal. That means a regular digestive system without bloating and wind, where food is being processed and not retained as fat.
Kidneys – Kidneys with an unimpeded energy flow can flush toxins and water out your body properly, this helps prevent water retention and infections.
Liver – Making sure your body is circulating blood and energy properly to your liver is vital. A fully functioning liver helps your body breakdown oily foods, alcohol, chemicals and toxins.
How Else can Moxibustion help me?
Moxibustion can be used to treat other conditions caused by poor blood flow and low energy like chronic fatigue, infertility, headache, swelling and stomach ache as well as pain (back, neck, shoulder or period pain for example). The ancient art of Moxibustion offers a natural drug-free way to restore and maintain your body and help you lead a healthy and balanced lifestyle.

Throughout my life, I have always found exams of any kind extremely stressful. Recently, when I was training to be an aerobics instructor, the thought of the practical examination filled me with dread. I had several acupuncture treatments in the run up to my exam to relieve anxiety and reduce stress. The acupuncture, herbal medicine, breathing exercises and reflexology massages made a huge difference. Although I did still suffer some nerves on the day of the exam, the overall effect was that the stress reduced significantly and I passed the exam. I cannot thank GinSen enough, they taught me to control my nerves, and without them, I am not sure I would have made it through my exam quite so easily
