Moxibuston Treatment

Moxibustion Treatment Korea

One of the joys of living in Korea is the widespread availability of oriental medicine {한의학}– acupuncture, acupressure, herbal treatments, and moxibustion, ( 灸 뜸) and traditional Korean saunas including the famous charcoal saunas.  The sauna business was badly hit by the COVID shutdowns, but they have survived, and many have re-opened.  I went to a charcoal sauna the other day, for the first time in over a year.

Oriental medicine  treats, the entire person, not just symptoms like Western medicine. If you have arthritis as I have in more than one place you will have to see multiple doctors for treatment – a foot doctor, a knee doctor, and a neck doctor, and none of the doctors will coordinate with the other doctors to make sure that the treatment is effective and efficient. And of course, multiple bills to multiple clinics, as well as having to obtain insurance permission for treatment. No wonder so many people are looking for alternatives. And the western medical establishment is constantly attacking alternative medicine as unfounded, dangerous, and unscientific.  None of which is true, as oriental medicine dates back thousands of years, and in a word, works wonders. I am a big fan.

I have tried acupuncture, acupressure, and charcoal saunas over the years, even from US military doctors! It seems to work for me. I found it helps with my fibromyalgia and arthritis, and I like that it works for the entire body.

Moxibustion involves burning herbal medicine on top of the body – the medicine gets absorbed into your blood stream and restores your Chi – your energy levels and gets rid of inflammation among other things. They use a mixture of herbs, mostly mugwort, 쑥   Mugwort is also sold as tea but is pretty bitter in taste. the smell of burning mugwort is similar to marijuana.  In fact, when I first smelled it, I thought someone was smoking a joint!

Lately, I tried Moxibustion treatment for my lingering arthritis, and fibromyalgia and to finally lose my belly fat! The doctor assured me that it would work for all of these problems. I started a twice-week regime for the next two months, then once a monthly maintenance routine. They will also do acupuncture. The cost is 40 dollars per treatment, well within my insurance limits of 75 dollars for 50 sessions a year.
