Hello Gorgeous! Have you heard what is Moxibustion? Yes? No? Who me? Well, seriously babes, I have never heard of this treatment for pain before. I spent a few hours on google to find out a little bit more about the treatment and also to make sure that this treatment will not make me scream like a Banshee. Yeah, you know me well, I hate pain and I will scream at the slightest pain. Alright darlings, I'll stop rambling now and let's talk about Moxibustion and my experience. So let's Rock N Roll!
What is Moxibustion?
Moxibustion is a traditional Chinese healing therapy that has been practiced for thousands of years in China. It is designed to eliminate pains from head to toes. It helps to improve blood circulation, strengthen skin tissues and promotes excretion of toxins within the body without any dangerous medication involved. It involves the burning of moxa stick (look like rolled-up cigar shape) an inch above the skin. Don't worry, the burning moxa stick does not touch your skin during treatment. Moxibustion is absolutely safe and effective treatment option for aches and pains.

MY MOXIBUSTION EXPERIENCE
A friend recommended Moxibustion at I&Y Beauty & Slimming Centre and I decided to give it a try. Upon arrival, I was greeted warmly by Carol, owner of I&Y Beauty & Slimming Centre, and invited me to sit down in the reception area.
As usual, like most beauty treatments, I went through consultation procedure with Carol before the treatment. We discussed my health concerns (migraines, neck and shoulder pain), and a solution that fits my situation.
She used the latest computerised health diagnostic 'Quantum Resonance Magnetic Analyzer' to assess and evaluate my health status. I was instructed to hold the test rod to collect my health data and within minutes it showed the test result of my overall health conditions.
The analysis report card showed that I had poor blood circulation. I was explained that my blood flow was poorly maintained and my stress level was so high that led to muscles tense up. Due to these problems, I always had migraine attacks, neck & left shoulder pain and unexplained fatigue. Carol advised me to treat my health problems as soon as possible. She mentioned that Moxibustion is the best option for my situation.
After the consultation, we proceeded with the Moxibustion and Mud Mineral treatment. Carol started by throwing a nice and relaxing massage on my neck, shoulder, arms and entire back part of my body with Essential Oils.
Next, she performed Gua Sha on me by scraping on the affected area with bianstone scraping plate (see image above). This scraping technique helps to release toxins, stimulate blood flow & healing.
I'm blessed with zero pain tolerance so I requested Carol to apply light pressure with the scraping plate against my skin. It was a little painful for me but I can tolerate the pressure. There were bruises around my shoulder blade, neck, middle of my back and across my shoulder. The bruises faded away on their own in about 3 days. Fret not, the bruises were painless.
So right after the Gua Sha and massage, Carol applied the mineral mud on my arms, neck, shoulder and spine area at the acupuncture points. Then she burned the moxa sticks and held it an inch above my skin on a specific areas for a few minutes. I felt warm but neither too hot nor burning feeling. The treatment ended with essential oils and a quick relaxing massage.
THE FINAL VERDICT
Overall. the treatment was very relaxing and comfortable. I felt wonderful and really enjoyed my treatment using Gua Sha technique. After just one session, I had 98% relief (eliminate) of my pain on my neck & shoulder, and my migraines subsided (no migraine attacks till now). I had a great time there and I would definitely go back there again for another treatment.
Before the treatment, I had a mini tour of I&Y Beauty and Slimming Centre. It is a very relaxing place to do your treatment. So let's check it out, shall we?
