Moxabustion

 What is Moxabustion?Moxabustion is the use of a herb Mugwort/Moxa (Ai Ye in Chinese or Artemesia Vulgaris in Latin) for healing purposes.  Dried moxa will be burned on (direct) or above the skin (indirect) at acupuncture points. In Australia most acupuncturists do not use direct moxa in order to avoid scarring, but rather will burn the herb indirectly above the skin, like we do at Dr. Li's TCM Clinic. We usually combines moxabustion with acupuncture.How does Moxabustion work?We mostly use needle moxa , moxa warmers, or moxa may be packed onto a slice of ginger or garlic, in salt or on a piece of aconite.
