Moxibustion…I’m pretty sure you said “Moxi–whaaaat??”
It may sound weird and foreign but what it can do for our dogs is huge.
Moxibustion, A Heat Therapy Intended to Stimulate Circulation
In Japanese = Mogusa (Mugwort)
In Latin = Combustio (Burning)
Moxibustion is a heat therapy, intended to stimulate circulation through application over acupressure points for smoother flow of blood and qi/chi, as well as pain reduction. Commonly used for pain associated with:
- over-worked muscles
- irritated skin
- herniated disks
Moxibustion with Loquat Leave Extract
Now, just burning mugwort alone will create dry heat. But, if applied with loquat leave extract, it will be wet heat, which has been proven to alliviate pain for a longer period of time versus dry heat.
You’ve seen loquat trees, right? Have you eaten the fruit? So, why we use Loquat leave extract?
Loquat leaves are rich in amygdalin and contains vitamin B17. Well known remedies include:
- anti inflammatory
- smoother flow of blood (natural blood thiner)
- pain reduction
Through combining the heat therapy using mugwart and loquat leave extract, we can achieve an effective treatment particularly for pain reduction purposes.
The loquat leave extract we used are:
- alcohol free
- pesticide free and grown specifically for moxibustion therapy use
- abundant in magnesium, zinc and other minerals as it is cured with concentrated natural sea salt
Add Moxibustion To Massage = A Powerful Tool For Your Dog’s Aches & Pains
So, if you are like me; wanting to make sure you dog is feeling comfortable, free from pain with use of very little or no use of synthetic medication, give moxibustion a try. If you think your dog will be fearful or irritated with the heat or smoke, it is totally understandable. But sometimes, if we step back a little, breathe and be open to new things, you will be surprised at how open your dog will be, too.
Is this totally ridiculous? Do you think it’s scary? Let me know what you think. Your comments are welcome. :)
