moxa on needles brings warmth deep into the body

Needle moxa

Moxibustion is a technique of adding warmth to the body, either on the surface, or more deeply. Utilizing the principle that heat causes movement, acupuncturists use moxibustion in a controlled way to combat disease and injury.

Moxibustion is used as an adjunct to the needling component of a treatment, or is used in place of it as the main treatment. Chronic muscle or joint pain, difficult digestion, and reproductive issues are three examples of conditions that moxibustion can benefit.
