This is a picture of Moxibustion on top of the Acupuncture needle. I use this technique on joint pain when there is pain due to movement. In 2019 I had a patient who came in for shoulder pain and was diagnosed with tendonitis, had 2 cortisone shots which only gave temporary relief. Acupuncture alone would not be able to treat this type of tendonitis. Moxibustion helps allow move circulation which is different from reducing inflammation.

If you are looking to quit cigarettes or vapes Acupuncture is a safe way to cut down on cravings. What's more important is to educate yourself on healthy habits and creating a reward system that supports your good habits.
