Moxibustion Moxibustion, also called moxa treatment, traditional medical practice that originated in China and thence spread to Japan and other Asian countries. It is performed by burning small cones of dried leaves on certain designated points of the body, generally the same points as those used in acupuncture. The term moxibustion derives from the name of the wormwood plant most frequently used, Artemisia moxa, or (Japanese) A. mogusa. Acupuncture and moxibustion are sometimes used in combination for the treatment of disease and for anesthesia.


Moxibustion can relieve pain and provide relaxation without medications or surgery. Moxibustion is easily combined with all forms of acupuncture and can be an important adjunct to a variety of treatments in complementary medicine. In traditional Chinese medicine, it is considered equal in healing power to diet, exercise, meditation, and cupping. When properly administered by an experienced and certified practitioner, moxibustion therapy is safe.
