Moxibustion

Moxibustion is a technique used in traditional Chinese medicine in which a stick or cone of burning mugwort , Artemesia vulgaris, is placed over an inflamed or affected area on the body.

Moxibustion warms body regions and acupuncture points with the intention of stimulating circulation through the points and inducing a smoother flow of energy.
