Moxibustion (Moxa)

Moxa

Moxibustion, or Moxa, uses the herb Mugwort, which is burned to release infrared heat and smoke containing essential oils that facilitate healing. Moxibustion has been used for millennia to warm channels, increase circulation, supplement the immune system and to break up stagnation in the body.

Different methods of application of moxa include indirect stick, “rice-grain” (tiny threads of moxa), cones, or liquid moxa, which is wiped onto points and activated with a TDP lamp (infrared heat).
