What it is:

Moxibustion is a traditional Chinese medicine technique that involves the burning of mugwort (Artemisia argyi) herb on certain designated points of the body (same points as used in acupuncture and acupressure) to facilitate healing. Moxibustion has been used throughout Asia for thousands of years for the treatments of fatigue, fibromyalgia and pain syndromes, certain musculo-skeletal injuries, arthritis, digestive disorders, women’s menstrual issues, turning breech birth, and more.

How is done:

Moxibustion techniques are much like those of acupuncture without any needles involved. The practitioner will place moxa sticks on acupuncture points on the skin to allow a deep, penetrating heat to seep through to help reduce pain and inflammation.
