• Moxibustion

  • Moxibustion is a technique often used with acupuncture. It uses heat to provide strong stimulation of an acupuncture point. Moxa is an herb (mugwort) that when burned, is deeply penetrating. Moxa is either placed directly on top of an acupuncture needle and burned or is rolled into a stick which is lit and waved over a specific treatment area for several minutes.
