Moxa Therapy

Moxa or moxibustion is a traditional Chinese medicine technique that involves the burning of the herb mugwort over an area to facilitate healing. The purpose of moxibustion is to strengthen the blood, stimulate the flow of Qi, and bring heat to an area. Moxibustion is used on people who have a cold or stagnant condition such as Oesteo-arthritis and pain. The burning of moxa is believed to expel cold and warm the meridians which lead to smoother flow of blood and Qi and reduced pain.
