Moxibustion, besides acupuncture, is another important form of treatment in oriental medicine. As a well-known therapy within oriental medicine, moxibustion’s purpose is to restore the circulation of energy and / or blood in the body. Traditionally performed by the burning of special herbs (mugwort, Artemisia vulgaris) at certain acupuncture points and thus helps to re-energise the body.
These burnings can be done in different ways. One of the ways is to place loose moxa herb in a moxabox and ignite it where the heat generated from the burning moxa is transferred to the large surface area of the box and onto the body.
