Moxibustion is a technique where the herb dried-mugwort is burned over acupuncture points for a heating and therapeutic effect. As the moxa is burned near the skin, the warmth generated gently penetrates the tissues in order to induce better circulation and relaxation. It is a painless and soothing technique that rejuvenates and warms the body from within.
