Moxibustion treatment in Sitges and Barcelona

Moxibustion, a heat stimulation technique of acupuncture points

Also known as Moxa

Moxibustion consists of bringing heat to selected areas of the body in order to warm up or increase Qi, where the body needs it.

In this practice, we use a stick made of chaok and a dried plant, Artimisia vulgaris. The moxa stick is the heating object that allows this stimulation. Its slow and gentle combustion allows heating without burning the skin.

Moxibustion in Chinese Medicine


Moxa is made of mugwort and charcoal which generates heat. This heat is approached to the meridians on which the acupuncture points are located. Moxibustion is a technique used in China for over 2500 years. It allows a pleasant heat penetration in the body.


I perform an energy balance and use moxibustion if he finds that the patient needs it. During moxibustion the heat can radiate further than the heated area.


The desired goal is :

  • Tonify the Yang Qi and harmonize the Yin and Yang energies.

  • Improve the circulation of Qi and blood in the meridians, thus eliminating the blockages source of the pains.

  • Reduce phlegm.

  • Dispersion of cold, which can cause a multitude of pains.


A beneficial sensation then meaning the unblocking of Qi and Blood more deeply.
