Moxibustion

Moxibustion is a medical technique which uses the heat generated by burning Moxa, or mugwort leaves, to stimulate points or specific sites on the surface of the body. Moxibustion can not only stimulate Qi circulation but also expel what TCM calls “harmful cold” in the body. From the perspective of Traditional Chinese Medicine, many disorders are caused by “harmful cold”, which blocks meridians and disrupts Qi circulation, thus causing pain and other complaints. As a remedy to such obstructions of the Qi, moxibustion is an effective treatment.
