Research has shown that this practice can benefit individuals suffering from digestive issues, chronic pains, diabetes, arthritis, headaches, ulcers, fatigue, kidney diseases and menstrual cramps among other things.

What is Moxibustion?

Moxibustion therapy is the burning of mugwort leaves close to the surface of the skin. A stick is used to transfer the heat to the affected area of the skin. There are several techniques that use this form of therapy. This can be often seen in acupuncture, when the acupuncture needle is heated from the burning of leaves. In other cases the heat is held several inches from the skin’s surface to accomplish the results. In recent times, creative ways have been used to offer the same health benefits of moxibustion without the need for the direct burning of mugwort leaves.
