Moxibustion: a traditional form of treatment

Moxibustion is a traditional treatment method available for thousands of years throughout Southeastern Asia. Moxibustion, produced from dried mugwort, is available in the form of loose golden moxa. We apply Moxibustion cones at acupuncture points or local body areas. Wounds from moxibustion become healed by our body.

Historically, moxa cones caused pus or suppuration. They tended to use more giant moxa cones at the time. Furthermore, people believed that treatments did not work well in the absence of sores. As a result, they intended to cause suppuration to produce therapeutic effects. However, studies show that moxa cones the size of a rice grain or half a rice grain can have beneficial therapeutic effects. They are not unpleasant. As a result, the modern method produces a little pus. If you apply it for an extended period, it may leave some tiny scars.
