Hello to all!
Its nice to see a forum like this. I have a question i would like to ask. It concerns moxa or moxibustion.
I was reading a book which stated that Moxa is as good as needles if not even better in certain ocassion, but its main disadvantage is the fact that it can only be used on 1 point at one time by 1 person.
That being said, the book continues by saying that both sedation and/or tonification can be done using moxa cigars. In order to tonify, one should use moxa for 3 minutes on an acu point. In order to sedate, one should use Moxa for lenghty 30 minutes.
Finally, it says, if a person uses Moxa for 12 minutes, it gives the body what it needs, either sedation or tonification.
I would like to ask if any of you here heard about this and if there is some truth to it?
