What’s that funky smell?
Many confuse the smell and look of moxa with other substances, however Moxa is actually using the very useful herb called Ai Ye or Mugwort.
We burn the herb and either hold it over a certain area or place it on top of a needle to further enhance treatments. It is a completely painless and non invasive method of treatment suitable for many conditions.
The therapeutic effects of moxa have been deduced to not only the heat from the burn but also the properties in the smoke to increase white cell production in the local area.
