Moxa sticks are made from the leaves of a plant (Artemisia argyi) and used to stimulate acupunture points. The Moxa has undergone a charcoal process to produce a stick that produce less smoke.
The Moxa stick can be applied for five to seven minutes over each point or until the area begins to feel uncomfortably hot.
Moxibustion has 3 different method to heat up the body meridians.
In this clinic, we provides the indirect moxibustion so that it won't make mark on the skin but still has effect of moxibustion. It is part of acupuncture treatment. Sometimes, we use only moxibustion as acupuncture treatment without using acupuncture needles.
