Traditional Chinese Medicine is a range of traditional medical practices originating in China that developed over several thousand years and is an integral part of Chinese culture.

TCM is defined as a medical science governing the theory and practice of traditional Chinese medicine, which includes Chinese medication, pharmacology, herbal medicine, acupuncture, massage, moxibustion, cupping, guasha and Qigong.

The only one true disease is the disturbance or blockage to the flow of life energy - Ki, Chi, Prana or Mana. All pain and illness is a manifestation of energy imbalance and pleasurable good health is the result of having an uninterrupted and abundant flow of life energy.

Moxibustion treats and prevents diseases by applying heat to points or certain locations of the human body. The actual Chinese character for acupuncture translated literally, means "acupuncture-moxibustion" and has been used throughout Asia for thousands of years.

It may be used alone or in combination with other modalities, such as acupuncture. It involves the burning of moxa on or above the skin at the location of specific acupoints, or on or near the lesion to be treated.

The heat of the cauterization, as well as the properties of the moxa itself, serve to warm and stimulate the Qi and blood flow in the channels, expel cold and dampness, restore yang, and in general, help to regulate the organs, promotes centeredness, treats muscle weakness due to aging as well as restore health and prolonging life.

Learn this simple therapy and experience the healing benefits in a day using:

- Direct non-scarring methods where we make rice and wheat grains as well as threadworms
  moxa sizes
- Indirect methods with ginger and salt, moxa sticks, moxa mild moxibustioners, moxa rollers and
