What is Moxibustion?
The Moxa herb is used for its warming and tonifying characteristics. Moxibustion (the process of burning Moxa) either on a needle or directly on the skin helps build the Qi and rid the body of excess moisture. Patients usually enjoy this sensation of warmth and find it very relaxing. The heat never gets close enough to the skin to burn. Where appropriate, Moxibustion is included with an acupuncture visit. Moxibustion treatments, by themselves, are also available.
