Moxibustion is a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine that involves the burning of a small piece of mugwart on a point of the body. Patients experience a pleasant heating sensation, but no pain is experienced. The intention is to warm and invigorate the flow of Qi in the body, and dispel certain pathogenic influences.
Moxibustion is typically used on people with colds or other stagnant conditions. In many cases it has been used to rotate a breech fetus before childbirth to allow for normal vaginal delivery! It can also be used to manage pain from injury or arthritis, as well as digestive problems!
