Moxabustion

What is moxabustion?

Moxabustion is the application of burning moxa herbs (dried mugwort) close to the acupuncture point to strengthen energy, move energy, increase Yang (heat), boost immunity and longevity and reduce excess Yin (cold, damp) conditions such as edema.

Moxa has a wide range of applications including turning a breech baby as you will see from this video.  Moxabustion can be used as a stand alone therapy or in conjunction with acupuncture such as the “warm the needle technique”.
