What is Moxibustion?
Moxibustion is a form of thermotherapy in which the dried plant material called “moxa” is burned on or very close to the surface of the skin. The intention is to warm and tonify the Yang, stimulate the flow of Qi in the body and dissolve certain pathogenic influences.
Moxa is made from the plant Artemisia vulgaris ( Artemisia / Wormwood)
When is Moxibustion used?
Pains due to injury or arthritis
Especially in “cold” patterns where the sensation of pain decreases with the application of heat
Gynecological and obstetrical diseases
Protection from the common cold and flu
Therapists often perform both acupuncture and moxibustion in the same session when appropriate.
