Moxibustion is a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) technique that involves the burning of mugwort to promote healing. The purpose of moxibustion is to strengthen the blood, stimulate the flow of qi, and maintain general health.
Moxibustion is used on people who have a cold or stagnant condition. The practice expels cold and warms the meridians, which leads to a smoother flow of blood and qi. This treatment is suitable for anyone who has poor blood circulation.
