• Moxibustion

  • Moxibustion, or moxa, is used on acupuncture points, along acupuncture channels, or on specific areas of the body. Moxa is the mugwort plant, dried and refined and may be used in individual hand-rolled cones on acupuncture points, in the form of a moxa stick (like a cigar) along acupuncture channels, or in a box to warm a particular area of the body. The therapeutic effect of moxa is to warm, supplement, nourish and promote movement – it greatly enhances the effect of the treatment.
