ginger moxa and arthritis

It’s the middle of winter and arthritic sufferers are doing it tough. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) can help manage arthritic pain, for example, tenderness, stiffness and swelling felt in joints triggered by cold weather by applying ginger moxa to affected areas.

As long as there is no heat or warmth found in the body or joints ginger moxa for arthritis involves directly placing thin slices of ginger on specific acupuncture points and burning the moxa (mugwort herb) on top of the ginger slices. The ginger and moxa contain warming properties which penetrate into the points thus dispersing cold from the joints and increasing blood and Qi circulation, relieving joint pain and stiffness.

This ancient practice is a natural and effective treatment form for many arthritic sufferers who experience discomfort triggered by the cold.
