Moxa is made from an herb called ‘mugwort’ or ‘artemisa vulgaris’. When burned, moxa will release a heat that has the same vibration frequency as the human body. By burning moxa near an acupuncture point you can add energy to the body and warm up the body’s own energy. Moxa is recommended in case of chronic pains, weakness of the tissue, lack of energy in the body and for insomnia. Moxa is especially effective in cold and damp weather conditions, and very suitable for patients who are sensitive to cold.
