MOXIBUSTION

What is Moxibustion?

Moxibustion is a technique that has been used for thousands of years by the Chinese. Moxibustion stimulates acupuncture points by heat from burning dried mugwort (artemisia argyi or vulgaris) locally. The heat from mugwort stimulates blood flow in the body. It is often used to treat pain, coldness, breech baby, sinus issues, immune support, etc.

 

We use moxibustion in acupuncture treatments and also teach patients on how to use moxibustion at home.
