Moxabustion

"Moxa" Used for Cold Syndrome



Moxabustion or “moxa” is a Chinese herb used topically over certain points, when indicated, to warm up the body if the patient is diagnosed to have a cold syndrome. Each of us possesses both warming “yang” and cooling “yin” properties in our physical bodies and, from time to time, these properties can become imbalanced. Moxa can help strengthen the body’s warming or “yang” property.
