The herb Moxa is burnt over certain acupoints to bring warmth and stimulate the “Qi Energy” for healing. There are different types of moxibustion. We can apply moxa rolls over acupoints or place moxa stick on inserted needles to warm needles and acupoints as well. Moxa cones can also be place on ginger slice or paper protector on acupoints.
Moxibustion is usually used with acupuncture for treating cold or stagnant conditions and sport injuries as well. Other typical uses of moxibustion include low immunity, infertility and abnormal fetal position.
