Moxibustion is the process of burning the dried herb mugwort on an acupuncture point. ‘Moxa’ for short, is used to nourish the body and support the immune system. It is used for specific patterns of disharmony for both physical and emotional support. We typically use it during an acupuncture treatment and sometimes send people home with ‘moxa’ to use at home to enhance the effects of the in-office treatments.
