Moxa Basics (1)
Time & Location
About the Event
Moxibustion therapy is the use of Moxa herbs to warm acupuncture points for therapeutic benefit. Moxa is made from the leaves of the mugwort plant (Artemisia argue) and is processed into various forms. It provides a deep penetrating heat that is healing and comforting. Its use in Chinese medicine predates written history.
