This an ancient form of heat therapy using the plant Mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris) that is either rolled into sticks and waved around acupuncture needles for indirect moxa or made into tiny cones and burned on ointment for direct moxa.
When acupuncture needles are in the body, the indirect moxa heats them, and the metal conducts heat down into the muscles.
Moxa Acupuncture and Moxibustion are commonly used together and can be used to treat sore muscles, bronchial asthma, bronchitis, certain types of paralysis and arthritic disorders.
