Moxibustion (moxa) should only be administered under the direction or supervision of a qualified practitioner. To ensure safety, do not use moxa products that are damaged or cracked.
Instruct patients to communicate any uncomfortable sensation of heat immediately. Remove moxa immediately if patient indicates that heat sensation becomes uncomfortable. Improper use can result in skin redness or blisters.
Never leave patients unattended during any moxa use.
Moxa is contraindicated for use on the face or on other sensitive areas, on infants or young children, or on patients unable to sense heat or pain (e.g. the elderly, or those with nerve damage).
It is strongly recommended that you use protective barriers with any moxa product that provides them in the box of moxa product.
Needle Moxa – Protect skin around and under the needle from potential falling ash with the use of a protective barrier such as aluminum foil.
Moxa Sticks (Rolls) – Remove the ash frequently by gently tapping the side of the stick against an ashtray or other suitable container.
Stick-on Moxa – Always ignite stick-on moxa first and then apply to patient. If heat becomes uncomfortable, remove or move moxa to another location immediately. It is strongly recommended that you use the included protective barriers when using stick-on moxa. It is strongly recommended that you apply a layer of burn cream to the patient’s skin before applying stick-on moxa.
