Moxibustion or Moxa has been used as part of TCM over thousand of years.
Moxibustion is a therapeutic herb known as mugwort. It can be used directly on the skin or indirectly on the acupuncture needle. It conducts heat into the muscle and surrounding areas and induces blood flow. There are different forms of moxa including moxa sticks, moxa cones and loose moxa. It depends on the treatment what form is used.
A lot of research has been conducted on moxa in both China and Japan and it has been clinically proven that moxa can reinforce the natural healing ability of the body and well as improve whole body physiological abilities.
