Moxibustion, or moxa, is one of the vital components of Chinese Medicine. It is therapeutic burning of mugwort (Artemisia) on or over strategically selected acupuncture points. The process of doing so adds yang energy to the body. Therefore, it has a warming, strengthening, moving, or dispersing effect depending on the moxibustion method used. Moxibustion commonly treats cold hands and feet, slow digestion, and low energy. Furthermore, it is wonderful for low libido, infertility, edema, athletic injuries, and much more. It provides the body with a rooted energy often leaving the patient with a sense of relaxation and simultaneous vitality.
