Moxibustion involves the application of heat to acupoints via the burning of the herb, mugwort. This is a soothing, nourishing and energising treatment.
The quality of light emitted by the gently burning herb is infra-red light. Modern research indicates that infra-red light is beneficial for inflammatory conditions. I often use this method in my treatment of musculoskeletal, digestive, fertility and menstrual conditions.
