Sometimes I feel so passionate bout Moxa 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
Lets put it into context.
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 & aged so that it is a punk (soft downy fluff made from the hairs & oil of the leaves) or rolled into cigar like sticks. (uses more fibrous parts of the plant)
Moxa is burnt on or near acu-points in the body.
