Moxibustion Therapy

Moxibustion involves burning a cigar-shaped moxa stick, made of the herb mugwort, directly above acupuncture points.

Like acupuncture, moxa is used for a wide variety of disorders and is effective with many conditions. While needles can move energy and build or tonify the organ systems of the body, moxa is a way to add energy into the body’s system. Moxa produces a sensation of heat around a particular area and often has a relaxing effect.
