What is the stuff you are burning, and how does it help me?

Moxa, meaning “burning herb”, is a treatment that has been practiced for thousands of years to promote healing. Artemisia vulgaris, more commonly known as mugwort, is used in this practice to promote the flow of qi and circulation. The herb is placed on specific acupuncture points and burned slowly, which is a form of heat therapy called moxibustion.
