warming or moxibustion of the points with special sagebrush cigars or cones
Moxotherapy is a moxibustion of bioactive points (BAP) with sagebrush cigars, but not in the proper sense of the word; more exactly, energy channels (meridians) are warmed through BAP.
The Chinese technique of moxotherapy is a non-contact moxibustion. For these purposes cigars from sagebrush fibers are rolled and wrapped in thin paper. A cigar is fired and rotated slowly above the affected part of the body. The smoldering sagebrush cone is sometimes placed on a slice of ginger or garlic to intensify the effect. In order to warm up a larger part of the body (small of the back, abdomen), a box with medicinal plants for moxibustion is used.
The Japanese technique of moxibustion is a contact method of moxotherapy. In this case, medicinal plants are rolled in small balls and placed on the patient’s skin, after which they are fired with an aromatic stick, or such small fired balls are located on the tips of needles used for acupuncture.
Following the Tibetan method, dry medicinal plants are rolled in small cones or pyramids and placed on the bioactive points of the body. Subsequently, they are fired and left to smolder until the patient feels heat.
Moxotherapy is one of the most tested methods of folk Tibetan medicine which is specified in “Chzhud-she” as the king of all Eastern procedures. Few people know that moxotherapy is 5,000 years old.
The method of application of sagebrush cigars for moxibustion of bioactive points comprises all the best things. Smoldering cones of cigars used for the moxibustion of the required point are placed in 1 - 3 centimeters from the skin surface to have tolerable and pleasant warmth, as when cigar moxibustion takes place, infrared radiation occurs, and the temperature reaches 550 degrees. Cigars ensure quite an efficient thermal impact on the necessary vital bioactive points in order to normalize the functions of organs and body systems and, therefore, to provide rehabilitation – they restore the life activity of the entire body. Cigars are characterized by continuous burning (smoldering); they provide soft warmth that is sufficient to gain the necessary reflex-therapeutic effect.
Moxotherapy is an ideal geroprotector or, to put it simply, the means used to prevent and inhibit ageing of the body; moreover, moxibustion of “youth points” leads to rejuvenation – and to qualitative (i.e. active) longevity.
