Acupuncture Chinese Moxibustion Technique ' The Chinese Health Secrets Revealed! - Articles Surfing
Acupuncture Chinese moxibustion technique? What's that?
To start from the beginning, there are two operative parts to acupuncture ' one is operations with needles and the other is with fire. Both are important and can work hand in hand in curing illnesses.
Needless to say, acupuncture Chinese moxibustion refers to curing with fire. And it pretty much refers to the Jiu in Zhen Jiu (the Chinese name for acupuncture).
Acupuncture and moxibustion are significant inventions of the Chinese. In literature of the past, there were many legends about the origin of acupuncture and moxibustion such as Fu Xi's creation of the therapeutic techniques with stone needles, and Huang Di's invention of acupuncture and moxibustion.
The origin of acupuncture Chinese moxibustion can be dated back to the Eolithic age.
The methods in common use are moxibustion with moxa cone and cupping. The fundamental principle is to use a glass jar to cover a part of the body and allow it to 'suck' the body by putting fire in the jar. This heating forces the air out of the jar and causes a 'suction vortex' so that the jar sticks to the skin. This causes blood to be stimulated and stimulate the internal organs of the patient. The moxa cone can also be used for the same effect.
However, acupuncture Chinese moxibustion must be done such that it targets the relevant acupuncture points or meridians of the body. This is so that the targeted illness can be cured. Medicinal herbs as well as ginger and mashed garlic are sometimes added for the treatment. Generally, the jar is allowed to 'cup' body for about 15-20 minutes, and treatment has to be done over a period of time.
Besides these traditional methods of acupuncture Chinese moxibustion, people have now made improvements on the methods. Nowadays, possible equipment used include the microwave needle moxibustion, electronic needle moxibustion, acupoint injection, acupoint magnetotherapy, and so on.
