Moxibustion is a traditional Chinese medical technique that involves the application of heat to the acupoints to promote Qi flow and restore the Yang deficiency, or remove the “Cold Pathogens”. The heat is typically produced by burning of mugwort, a small, spongy herb, to facilitate healing. Moxibustion is as old as acupuncture. It can be used independently or as adjunction to acupuncture by placing the heat to the distant handle of an inserted acupuncture needle.
