Moxibustion is the use of the herb artemesia vulgaris, or mugwort to warm regions and acupuncture points with the intention of stimulating circulation through the points and inducing a smoother flow of blood and qi. Small, rice-grain cones of the herb are painlessly burned over acupuncture points or muscular indurations for therapeutic effect.

Moxa can be used in almost any internal and musculo-skeletal disorder.
