Moxibustion (moxa for short) is adds warmth to the body, felt as a pleasant warmth on the surface of the skin. Moxa promotes microcirculation in the area where it is applied. Known as a way to turn a breech baby, moxibustion is used in addition to acupuncture for gynecological, digestive, and orthopedic problems as well as for neuropathies and CIN.
There are many types of moxa and many ways it is administered. We mostly use small stick-on cones because they give off minimal smoke and burn quickly.
