• Moxibustion feels great

  • Moxibustion means the combustion of moxa. 'Moxa' describes the chalk-like cigar shaped compound of the Mugwort plant (Artemisia vulgaris). As the tip burns the moxa stick releases heat energy and a warm a smoky, spicy odour, which facilitates the expulsion of cold and dampness when held close to body channel points (see Acupuncture). More succinctly, moxa warms meridians to promote the circulation of Qi and blood. Moxibustion and acupuncture are often used together during a treatment and it feels terrific!
