Moxibustion is a Chinese medicine technique that involves the burning of the mugwort, Ai Ye, an herb to warm areas of the body or acupuncture points
It strengthens and invigorates the blood, stimulates the flow of Qi and removes coldness from the body. Moxa is especially useful for digestive issues, muscle pain and trauma healing as well as gynecological issues. Also folks with certain constitutions benefit from its use in treatment.
