Moxibustion (Chinese: 灸; pinyin: jiǔ) is a form of heat therapy used in traditional Chinese medicine.
Dried plant materials called "moxa" are burned on or very near the surface of the skin. The intention is to warm and invigorate the flow of Qi in the body and dispel certain pathogenic influences.
Moxa is usually made from the dried leafy material of Chinese mugwort (Artemesia argyi or A.vlugaris), but it can be made of other substances as well.
It can be processed into larger cigars or smaller sticks that can be stuck on the various points of the body.
They are used on Acupuncture points and I like to use them in chronic cases like abscesses, ulcers, kidney, spleen and liver blockages etc.
