Moxa is a herb Artemisia Vulgaris which is burned either directly or indirectly on an acupuncture point or area of the body. The heat produced helps to nourish and warm Qi and Blood and improve the flow of energy. It is used alongside acupuncture often where there is stagnation or cold.
It can be applied in several ways either directly on to a point; via a needle; above a point using a moxa roll or burning in a container and moved over an area of the body. The patient feels a gentle warmth from the burning moxa which does not burn the skin.
