Moxibustion for Colds (Physiotherapy)

Moxibustion for Colds (Physiotherapy)

As autumn comes, the weather gradually cools down.

In particular, the temperature difference between morning and evening is elongated, and many people are not used to it. Coupled with extra clothes, it is easy to catch a cold.

  Unlike the “hot cold” in summer, the cold in autumn is mostly “wind cold”.

At first, the patient will experience symptoms such as headache, fear of coldness, no sweat, sneezing, nasal congestion, runny nose, and lack of energy. If treated at this time, the disease can be prevented effectively.

Self-care with moxa sticks is one way.

  The specific points are as follows: 1.

Fengchi acupoint: Touch it backward from the lower edge of the bone behind the ear, you can feel a depression. This is the Fengchi acupoint, one on each side.


Fengfu acupoint: When taking acupuncture points, we will touch the depression along the back of our head. This is the Fengfu acupoint.


Hegu Point: It is what we usually call “Tiger Mouth”.


Zusanli: on the front of the calf.

After bending the knee, measure three inches down from the small depression outside the lower edge of hypertension, which is Zusanli.

  After igniting the moxa stick, hang it over the acupuncture point, and moxa is smoked and roasted 2-3 cm from the skin.

Moxibustion was performed at each point for 20 minutes.

  Note: 1.

Fengchi and Fengfu have hair covering both points. During moxibustion, the moxa stick should be raised slightly, and the hair should be pulled away with the other hand.


Moxibustion should be used as soon as possible in treating colds and colds.

If you have symptoms such as high fever, sore throat, or yellowish runny nose, you should go to the hospital in time.
