Moxibustion is a type of treatment that involves burning mugwort leaves.
What is moxibustion?
Moxibustion is a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine that has been practiced in Asia for thousands of years, long before acupuncture. Moxibustion is a technique that involves burning a natural herb called moxa, commonly known as mugwort (Artemesia Vulgaris), on a patient's skin, either indirectly or directly, to stimulate the acupuncture meridians beneath. The patient will feel a pleasant heating sensation that penetrates deep into the body during moxibustion, restoring blood flow and the vital energy known as Qi.
What does moxibustion treat?
