Moxibustion therapy is a technique in TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) that has been used throughout Asia for thousands of years. Moxibustion works on the properties of warming and stimulating the Yang Yi Qi, by combating cold and dampness from the body thus promoting normal functioning of the organs. Moxibustion also works in parallel with acupuncture therapy to treat and prevent disease when heat is applied to selected pressure points as to stimulate the flow of Qi. The material used is “Moxa Wool” made from the Mugwort leaves (Artemisia vulgaris in Latin). The Moxa Wool is either shaped into small cones, sticks that look like (smokeless) cigars or rolled into balls and placed onto the handle of the acupuncture needle.
