Benefits of moxibustion
It is inspiring that more people are aware of moxibustion nowadays. However, most of them need to know there are two different types: direct and indirect. I will not talk about indirect moxibustion since I specialize in direct scarring moxibustion alone.
Scarring moxibustion has a more extended history than acupuncture and indirect moxibustion, which can be seen in medical books unearthed in Mawangdui tombs in China. They did not mention acupuncture or acupuncture points.
People may ask what scarring moxibustion is good for. According to Dr. Namsoo Kim (Gudang), an authority on moxibustion and retired practitioner at his centennial age, scarring moxibustion aims to restore and enhance the natural healing power of the body. The effectiveness will differ depending on the natural healing power of each person. Some will respond to it fast, while others will do it slowly.
Moxibustion works well for all diseases. However, illnesses related to functions respond to moxibustion very well, but it has some difficulty with conditions of genetic predisposition. The late Gudang’s clinical experiences showed that moxibustion worked for neurosis, nutrition and metabolism disorders, endocrine disorders, respiratory disorders, tuberculosis, circulatory disorders, digestive disorders, tumors, urinary disorders, musculoskeletal disorders, gynecological disorders, neurological disorders, and so on.
He also stresses that scarring moxibustion is preventive medicine. You will harvest moxibustion benefits if you apply moxa cones on yourselves regularly. He was living proof of the effectiveness of scarring moxibustion.
