Moxibustion

MoxibustionMoxibustion is often used and very effective in conjunction with acupuncture. It involves lighting a stick or cone of the herb Ai Ye (known as Mugwort in English). This is done over affected areas of the body or directly onto an acupoint. This technique provides heat that penetrates affected areas slowly, stimulating and strengthening the flow of blood to the area and often providing immediate pain relief.
