Used for warming points or areas of the body with comfortable indirect moxa heat. The 2" dia (5 hole) is used for larger areas. Features an insulating rubber base. Uses 1" x 0.25" rigid Regular or Smokeless Sook moxa sticks with hollow center. (MOXA NOT INCLUDED)
Do not leave patient unattended during any moxa use.
Do not use moxa on the face, soft skin, or other sensitive body areas. Do not use moxa on infants or young children. Do not use moxa on patients who are not able to detect the sensations of heat or pain (i.e. elderly, patients with nerve damage, etc).
When using needle moxa, a protective shield, (i.e. aluminum foil), must be placed under and around the needle to protect the skin from loose or falling moxa ash.
When using moxa rolls, the burned ash must be frequently removed by gently tapping the side of the roll against a suitable container. For patient safety, do not use moxa rolls or any moxa product if damaged or cracked.
Always ignite stick-on moxa first and then apply to the point. If heat becomes uncomfortable, remove or move moxa to another location. If used incorrectly, redness or a small heat blister may appear after application.
