Modern day Moxibustion

Although there is extensive use of moxibustion in TCM clinics throughout China, it is not nearly as prevalent in Canadian clinical settings. One of the main stumbling blocks for moxibustion use is the strong scent and smoke that moxa can produce when burned. Although there are now various technological advancements in moxibustion application they still are not able to completely eliminate the odor issue.

Also modern teachings of moxibustion in Canada are not greatly emphasized and thus have become diluted and not utilized. This is truly unfortunate as moxibustion is a very powerful technique when used appropriately. It is said in the ancient text that when "acupuncture is not effective then moxibustion should be applied".
