Is an external heat therapy applied on or over an acupuncture point or affected area made from the dried leaves of Chinese mugwort (Artemesia arygii) Gentle heat is said to strengthen energy, warm cold and dry dampness.
The heat results from burning a stick of moxa close to, but not touching the surface of the skin which is allowed to smoulder an inch or two above the area being worked until the area becomes suffused with gentle warmth.
Moxibustion can safely be used at home. After training by the therapist, many clients use moxa therapy on themselves to strengthen the effect of the treatment between sessions.
