MOXIBUSTION TREATMENT PLAN
Moxibustion is a form of heat therapy which involves burning dried plant materials called “moxa” near the surface of the skin. Moxa is usually made from dried leaves of Chinese mugwort (Artemesia argyi or A. vlugaris).
To use moxibustion, moxa is compressed into a stick or pole. This is lit and allowed to smolder. The moxa is held over specific areas, often corresponding to acupuncture points. It may be used in conjunction with acupuncture to further each others’ effectiveness.
Moxibustion can be used to treat arthritis, digestive problems, gynecological and obstetrical conditions, and provide protection against the cold and flu.
