“Burning of Moxa” over points on the body.
Moxabustion usually uses an herb of Artimesia species that is burned in a therapeutic way over specific acupuncture points. It can be added to the end of a needle, applied directly over the point or it can be burned in a stick form and waved over a point. The use of “Moxa” usually is to remove cold from the body or to break up blood stagnation. It is great for wound healing and for treating traumas. In general it tonifies and warms the bodies energy while moving it.
