Moxibustion is the traditional Oriental medical method that involves the burning of mugwort, a special tinder of dried herbs, on or near the skin to facilitate healing. It has been utilised throughout Asia for over 3,000 years and was first practised in colder climates to bring about warmth to the body and to reduce pain. The main aim of moxibustion is to strengthen the flow of blood by improving circulation and enhancing the flow of qi (energy) and obtain or maintain health.
Cupping uses suction on the skin to create a vacuum which moves stagnant energy from the treated area. In doing this cupping greatly improves the flow of new blood and qi to the area which promotes healing.
