Moxibustion

Moxibustion, commonly referred to as Moxa, is the application, by burning, of the specially prepared herb Mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris). Moxa can be applied over general areas of the body or on specific acupuncture points. Moxibustion has both warming and drying properties and is a powerful Qi (energy / circulation) tonic.

Moxibustion is used to decrease pain and stiffness where there is a decrease in flow, circulation and energy. It is used to address gynecological issues (including infertility), arthritis, scarring, low immunity and certain skin conditions - just to name a few!
