Moxibustion is a traditional Chinese medicine technique which involves the burning of mug-wort, a small, spongy herb, to facilitate healing. It is often paired in treatment with acupuncture. The purpose of moxibustion is to strengthen the blood, stimulate the flow of energy, and maintain general health.
In my practice, I mostly use moxa on the bottoms of the feet and legs to increase circulation and warm the lower limbs. Depending on where moxa is ‘burned’ on the body, it has different actions. Anyone who runs cold, has poor circulation or anemic, would greatly benefit from moxibustion. It greatly nourishes those who have underlying weakness.
