Moxabustion, or "moxa" (the Japanese word for moxabustion) is an ancient form of heat therapy. Moxa plays an important role in the traditional medical systems of China, Japan, Korea, Vietnam, Tibet and Mongolia. Moxa warms regions and acupuncture points of the body with the intention of stimulating circulation through the acupoints and inducing smoother flow of Qi and blood.
During an indirect moxa treatment, the moxa stick is comfortably held several inches away from the skin and directed at major acupoints and meridians on the body. The practitioner and recipient are in constant communication for comfort, safety, and therapeutic results. As the herb is burned, the energy goes to you! Moxa works on the acupuncture points in a nourishing manner.
