Moxibustion is used to heal by strenghtening the flow of qi and blood

Moxibustion

Moxibustion is an ancient technique that involves burning Artemisia or mugwort (a plant similar to our Western sage) to bring healing by strengthening the flow of qi and blood, and by expelling cold. “Moxa” is burned either directly on the skin or indirectly above the patient.  It is gently warming, like a campfire, and does not burn the skin.
