Moxibustion

Santa Rosa Acupuncturist-59Moxibustion
Moxibustion (Moxa) is a form of therapy in TCM in which we burn a preparation of dried mugwort (Artimesia Argyi) and position it a few inches above the skin over specific points or areas of the body. This serves to stimulate acupuncture points, increase circulation, and warm the blood in the vessels. There are many types of Moxa and even more applications. Moxa is a valuable tool and an important part of my treatment plans.
