Moxibustion (Moxa) involves the burning of the herb Mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris) in either a specially prepared cigar-shaped roll, loose onto needles or in a “moxa-box” over the body. All of these methods are designed to warm the body and can even be used to add warmth to specific acupuncture points & warm and relax muscles.

Moxa is also used as a technique for turning breech presenting babies.  This training is offered by Acupuncture Cumbria, visit here for details.
