What Is Moxibustion Therapy?
Moxibustion therapy is traditional Chinese medicine therapy that consists of burning dried mugwort on particular points of the body. While the therapy has historically been popular in Far Eastern countries such as China, Japan, Korea, Vietnam and Mongolia, in recent times it has become more popular in the West.
Using either a cigar-shaped stick (moxa stick) or acupuncture needles, the practitioner burns moxa on the skin. According to Chinese traditional medicine, this increases the flow of vital energy (qi or chi) through certain pathways in the body.
How Safe Is Moxibustion?
Moxibustion is a safe type of therapy, and all equipment available has been certified by relevant bodies. We recommend that you only use moxa if you are a professional, as using it effectively requires training by a professional.
