Moxibustion (灸)

“针之不到,药之不及,灸之。”

“If the needle is not reachable, herbs is not effective, so need to do using moxibustion"

This traditional Chinese medicine therapy consists of burning dried mugwort (moxa) on particular points on the body.

The mugwort is aged and ground into a fluff. Practitioners burn the fluff or process it into a cigar-shaped stick.

Moxibustion therapy can warm the meridians, dispel cold and dampness, treat joint pain, low back pain, knee pain, hip pain, etc.
