Moxibustion is the process of burning herbs over an acupuncture point to warm the meridians and stimulate the points. It can be used in combination with regular acupuncture or on its own.

The herb used is usually Artemisia vulgaris (mugwort or common wormwood).

In direct moxibustion, the herbs can be stuck on a needle or directly on the skin.

With indirect moxibustion, the herbs are burned in a stick form and hovered over the points. This is particularly useful to help boost low energy and for ailments like colds, flus and achy, sore muscles. It is quite comforting to have the warm moxa stick moving over your body.

The skin is not burned in the process, just warmed. This is an option for those who are afraid or intolerant of needles. If moxibustion only is used, results may take slightly longer.
