What is moxibustion?
Moxibustion therapy (moxa treatment) is administered by burning the leaves of the Chinese herb mugwort (Artemesiae Vulgaris) in a variety of locations throughout the body.
Depending on your ailment, it may be burned in several different ways: on the handle of an acupuncture needle, slightly above the skin, on a bed of salt, or on a slice of ginger. In the vast majority of cases, moxabustion offers relief where Western techniques provide little help for patients.
