Moxibustion is a traditional Chinese medicine therapy that involves the burning of dried mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris) near specific points on the body. It is often used in conjunction with acupuncture or as a standalone treatment. During moxibustion, a small cone or stick of dried mugwort is lit and held close to the skin, generating heat and stimulating the acupuncture points. The purpose of moxibustion is to promote the flow of Qi (vital energy) and blood within the body, as well as to warm and nourish specific areas. The therapeutic effects of moxibustion are believed to include pain relief, improved circulation, enhanced immune function, and the restoration of balance in the body. Moxibustion is considered a safe and non-invasive therapy when performed by trained practitioners, and it has been used for centuries as a part of traditional Chinese medicine to treat various conditions and promote overall well-being.
