Acupuncture and moxibustion is often administered at the same clinic session when appropriate to the diagnosis and treatment strategy. The combined therapies increase each other's effectiveness when used together.
Moxibustion is a form of heat therapy that consists of burning the dried leaf on or above specific points on the body. This herb is known as mugwort, moxa, or Aì yè in Chinese medicine. It helps to warm areas of the body with the intention of stimulating circulation and lymphatic flow. It also helps to smooth the flow of Qi and blood and expel pathogenic influences. The scent of moxa is very distinct and many people find it to have a therapeutic and relaxing aroma.
