What is Moxibustion?

Moxibustion is an ancient form of heat therapy. It is used to warm regions and acupuncture points, with the intention of stimulating circulation through the points and inducing a smoother flow of blood and qi (energy). Heat produced by moxibustion penetrates deeply into the body, restoring balance and flow of qi and blood. Moxibustion promotes improvement in pain conditions as well as general health and is used to treat chronic conditions such as arthritis, and digestive disorders.

Moxibustion therapy is often included in conjunction with Acupuncture treatments.
