    Moxibustion is an oriental medicine
    therapy utilizing moxa, or mugwort herb.
    Suppliers usually age the mugwort are gird
    it up to a fluff; practitioners burn the fluff
    or process it further into a stick that
    ressembles a (non-smokable) cigar. We can
    keep it close to the patient's skin with or
    without acupuncture needles on
    acupuncture points.
    Moxibustion is especially effective in the
    treatment of chronic problems, "deficient
    conditions" (weakness).
    Practitioners use moxa to warm
    acupuncture points with the intention of
    stimulating circulation through the points
    and inducing a smoother flow of blood and
    qi, specially in the pelvic area and uterus.
    It is claimed that moxibustion militates
    against cold and dampness in the body and
    can serve to turn breech babies.
