Moxa Heat Therapy
“Moxibustion" is an essential part of an effective acupuncture therapy. It involves the burning of the herb mugwort over an acupuncture point. The patient will feel mild heat from this process, though not enough to cause pain. Many patents find moxibustion to be a pleasant and relaxing experience. The heat from moxibustion is very penetrating and generally is used to increase the effectiveness of acupuncture therapy.
