Moxibustion
Moxibustion is the use of a ground herb called Ai ye (mugwort). The herb is placed on the skin, on a needle, or a few inches away from the skin in a rolled form. The herb is lit and provides heat to the area of the body in which it is applied. The heat therapy provides tonification and can enhance the effect of some of the acupoints. Most patients find the effect to be relaxing and healing when applied to areas that have been experiencing tightness or lack of circulation. The practitioner and patient work together to ensure safety, comfort and adequate heat are maintained.
