MOXIBUSTION

Moxibustion ("moxa") is a technique in which dried herbal matter is burned near the surface of the skin. This herb is known as mugwort or Aì yè in Chinese.  Moxa is used to help strengthen the immune system, warm the body, promote circulation and stop pain. It is often used to treat menstrual pain or irregular periods, and to turn breech babies.
