This morning Kyoko visited Edward's Acupunture Clinic in Sangenjaya. She didn't receive acupunture, but moxibustion which is a heat application treatment on the acupuncture points with the use of a herb called "Moxa". Moxibustion (Moxa + combustion). When lit, moxa burns slowly and provides a penetrating heat that can enter the channels to influence the Chi and Blood flow, hence it's therapeutic properties. For many centuries moxibustion has been used in combination with acupuncture.
The channel or meridian that Edward worked on was one that is directly connected to the uterus. It was Kyoko's first time and she said she could feel a big difference and that it was a positive experience. Edward is British and has studied in China & Japan. He is very knowledgable and friendly. The clinic can be reached at TEL# 03-3418-8989.
