Sometimes, we need to get things really moving to unblock and detoxify your system. That’s when it’s time to add moxibustion to your acupuncture treatments. Moxibustion is the ancient method of burning dried mugwort leaves, or “Mogusa,” on or near the skin. Mogusa can increase blood flow to areas of injury and warm areas where cold accumulates. It is a calming, warming, and deeply nourishing technique that can alleviate all sorts of ailments from chronic pain to menstrual cramps to ulcerative colitis.
