In Traditional Chinese Medicine, moxibustion is often used to break up stagnation.  Moxibustion is a technique that involves the burning of an herb called, Mugwort, and is used to expediate healing by stimulating the flow of qi energy.  At Awakening Balance, we more commonly use Moxa with our acupuncture needles.   The herb is applied to the top of the needle and then ignited, generating heat to the meredian point being treated. To learn more about Moxibustion click here.
