Moxibustion is a traditional Chinese medical therapy made up of dried Chinese Mugwort herb. This therapy has been used for thousands of years.
The purpose of moxibustion is to stimulate blood and energy flow, drain dampness, strengthen the immune system, and maintain health. The most common procedure is with the use of a moxa stick. The Chinese Mugwort is rolled into a cigar like stick and held and an inch or two above an acupuncture point until the patient feels the point get hot.
