Huo Long Thermotherapy

Huo Long Thermotherapy is a traditional therapy that originates from Tibet. Huo Long Thermotherapy combines traditional Chinese medical meridian theory with Moxibustion therapy to enhance the efficacy of these therapies.

Through intermediate direct contact with heat, pores and acupoints can be swiftly opened up providing for immediate improvement in circulation of Qi and inducing the Yin and Yang balance of the body.

How Is Huo Long Thermotherapy Done?

The area to be treated is first insulated with layers of damp towels. A final damp towel is dabbed with alcohol which is then set alight. Once you start feeling uncomfortable from the heat, the fire is then doused with a wet towel.

The process is repeated 3-4 times after which a damp towel is finally laid upon the treated area for a few minutes to aid in the closing of the opened pores and acupoints.

In certain cases, you may opt to infuse the first layer with medicated wine to improve energy metabolism and treat more serious ailments.

What Does Huo Long Thermotherapy Feel?

A warm sensation is felt in the affected area which slowly increases in intensity. Once the heat’s intensity starts feeling uncomfortable, the therapist will douse the fire with a wet towel.

Are There Any Side Effects?

Huo Long therapy produces many side effects, but all of them are positive. A common example is the person treated for chronic back pain finding that their chronic constipation has also been eased.

Are There Any Contraindications?

As with Moxibustion, Huo Long therapy is generally not recommended for patients with diabetes, decreased sensitivity to pain, who are on certain medications such as prednisone, or who have any other conditions involving compromised circulation.
