History and General Principals…
How does moxibustion work? Does it hurt?
Indirect moxibustion is currently the more popular form of care because there is a much lower risk of pain or burning. In indirect moxibustion, a practitioner lights one end of a moxa stick, roughly the shape and size of a cigar, and holds it close to the area being treated for several minutes until the area turns red. Another form of indirect moxibustion uses both acupuncture needles and moxa. A needle is inserted into an acupoint and retained. The tip of the needle is then wrapped in moxa and ignited, generating heat to the point and the surrounding area. After the desired effect is achieved, the moxa is extinguished and the needle(s) removed.

What Our Happy Clients Say
"Tiffany's care and concern is evident in how thoroughly she does her work. She is incredibly knowledgeable and educated about recent scientific developments in a field that is mellennia old. After one session, my pain had diminished greatly, after the second session, it was gone."
"Thanks for being so kind and helping me with my health. You have made a big difference with my back and leg pain."
I would personally like to thank you for giving me my life back! I suffered for so long with Trochanteric Bursitis in my hips and Fibromyalgia and could never take any pain meds or anti-inflammatory drugs that I didn’t react to and the pain was just unbearable… My pain management doctor and my internal medicine doctor told me that western medicine was not working for me, and that I needed to try alternative medicine, perhaps Acupuncture. I had already tried Chinese Acupuncture before my successful back surgery in May 2015, with no results. The first time you worked on me was in December, 2016 and after I left your office, I had no pain… I came home and told Bill, “It is a Christmas Miracle” as I hadn’t been out of pain for years. I have gotten better and better with each one of your treatments. I just wanted you to know what you do is extraordinary! And Bill has gotten so much relief with his shoulders, back and sinuses, so he too is very thankful as well.
As I told you last week, you need to tell people, “Let me be your medicine” because what you do is the “Best Medicine in The World!”
Hugs and Love,
Jan Marie and Bill Robertson
