Moxibustion, or Moxa for short, is an ancient form of heat therapy. Moxa uses the ground up leaves of the plant Mugwort (Artemesia vulgaris). These are rolled into sticks for indirect moxa.

In Chinese, the term for acupuncture is "Zhen Jiu." The "Zhen" means "needle," and the "Jiu" means "moxa." Thus, acupuncture and moxibustion have been paired therapies for hundreds of years. When the needles are in the body, the indirect moxa heats them, and the metal conducts the heat down into the muscles, where it is most needed.

However, moxa can be effective by itself, and is an inexpensive form of home therapy for many types of pain, such as sore joints or menstrual cramps.

Benefits of Moxa:

It increases the production of white blood cells and the produciton of red blood cells and haemoglobin; and improves the overall blood and lymph circulations. Moxa is more effective for internal chronic ailments than acupuncture, and it is a safer treatment than acupuncture and can be used as a home therapy.

Both acupuncture and moxibustion must be practiced by licensed medical professionals. However, since moxibustion is a much safer method than acupuncture, it has been widely used as a very handy and effective folk remedy for centuries in Asia. Especially in Japan, various new types of moxa for home treatment are available on the market now. You can use moxa not only for the treatment of specific ailments but also for continuously maintaining good health.
