Moxibustion uses an herb called mugwort to apply heat to acupuncture points. The mugwort is packed into different shapes and is burned. We then place the burning mugwort above the acupuncture points which need to be warmed and allow the heat to be absorbed. This traditional Chinese medicine treatment is used to boost the immune system by bringing more Qi into specific areas of the body. This increases blood flow and can help your body speed up the healing process. Moxibustion is also used to warm you up if you’re chronically cold. So if you always have cold hands or feet, moxibustion can be used to help warm things up.
