Additional Information

There is typically a lot of smoke with moxibustion therapy, and we take steps to ensure adequate active ventilation in the clinic to minimise this. However, there will be odour of the burnt herb which may linger on clothes or irritate the throat. If you have allergies please let the clinic know when you make your booking, or discuss this with your treating clinician.
