MK-9000 Moxibustion Machine is based on the principles
Moxibustion is a traditional mode of therapy that involves medicated heating of acupoints to provide relief and cure of some of the difficult forms of ailments. It uses a material called moxa, a Chinese mugwort leaf which is fragrant and easily gets ignited. It is processed into Mugwort wool for clinical use.
Moxibustion has a long history in East Asia, and it usually refers to traditional therapeutic technique of heat stimulation of affected area by applying ignited mugwort or other medical herbs.
It plays an important role in the traditional medical systems of China, Tibet, Japan, Korea, Vietnam, and Mongolia. It is based on the theory of meridian system of the human body. Moxibustion is also used in regulating functions of the body to improve and rectify the disturbance and dysfunction of certain organs in the body.
Low-frequency electrical stimulation (LFES) is an acupuncture technique that replicates the benefits of resistance exercise through stimulation of muscle contraction. In skeletal muscle, insulin or IGF-1 plays critical roles in maintaining protein metabolism.
Electrical nerve stimulation can reverse spinal cord injury nerve damage in patients. Researchers have found that nerve stimulation can improve the function of peripheral nerves damaged by spinal cord injury.
Surprisingly, without modifying their exercise or diet, the LFES does cause significant effects on decreasing waist circumference, abdominal obesity, subcutaneous fat mass, and body fat percentage.
Low-frequency (LF) treatment involves pulses ranging from 1 to 20 cycles per second and are suitable for the treatment of chronic pain.
Uses of Low Frequency:
1.Promotes blood circulation: It activates metabolism, promotes blood circulation and hence gives good effectiveness to the inflammatory diseases.
2. Adjusts the function of all glands: It promotes release of digestive liquids, controls the release of the stomach acids, and controls the thyroid gland and pancreas hormone.
3.Good Absorption: It enhances the absorption power of the whole body.
In nutshell, low frequency therapy activates the function of all internal organs and thus enhances their life span.
Far-Infrared Rays (or FIR) can stimulate the cardiovascular function and has been found to be an ideal way to maintain cardiovascular health in American astronauts during long space flight, according to NASA.
FIR and the gentle tissue warming has also been shown to help improve the health of the cells that line our blood vessels, which if left untreated may increase the risk of heart disorders.
Far-Infrared is also excellent for detoxification and helps lymphatic cleansing. Scientists in Japan report that in the FIR treatment of clogged capillary vessels, heat expands the capillaries and then initiates the start of a process to dissolve hidden toxins.
It promotes the elimination of fats, chemicals and toxins from the blood, poisons, heavy metals, carcinogenic substances, lactic acid, free fatty acids, and subcutaneous fat associated with aging and fatigue, excess sodium associated with blood pressure, and uric acid. When toxins accumulate, blood circulation is blocked and cellular energy is impaired.
Moxibustion technique is beneficial in following conditions:
Deficiency-cold syndrome in surgery
Acute abdominal pain of cold syndrome
Scrofula or the cervical TB
Sores without ulceration
neck and back pain
painful diabetic neuropathy
spinal cord injury
