Moxibustion treatment

Moxibustion, a heat stimulation technique of acupuncture points

Also known as Moxa

Moxibustion consists of bringing heat to selected areas of the body in order to warm up or increase Qi, where the body needs it.

In this practice, we use a stick made of chaok and a dried plant, Artimisia vulgaris. The moxa stick is the heating object that allows this stimulation. Its slow and gentle combustion allows heating without burning the skin.
