Sometimes I feel so passionate about Moxa (Moxibustion) that I feel I could pop.
1. I’m a major Chinese med geek
2. Because of the untapped potential of this amazing technique. It’s a true gem.
- easy to use for most people
Let’s put it into context.
What Is Moxibustion?
To start, what is it?
Moxibustion is the burning/smouldering of the herb known as Mugwort (botanically known as artemisa agyii, princeps or montanta) that has been dried, processed and aged so that it is a punk (soft downy fluff made from the hairs and oil of the leaves) or rolled into cigar-like sticks (this uses more fibrous parts of the plant).
Moxa is burnt on or near acu-points in the body.
