What is moxa
The raw material of moxa is called Chinese mugwort (Artemisia argyi). In China, around the Duanwu Festival, which is the fifth day of the fifth lunar month, it is traditionally the best time to pick the leaves of Chinese mugwort. After drying, the leaves are stored in a shady and ventilated place for making the quality of moxa satisfy the needs of moxibustion. Before making moxa products, dried mugwort leaves are processed into fine and soft fibers, which are called moxa floss.
Effects of moxibustion
Moxibustion is a traditional Chinese external therapy. Huang Di Nei Jing, the most important theoretical work of TCM, describes the importance of moxibustion as “the problems that acupuncture cannot solve are the advantages of moxibustion”. Moxibustion warms meridians, strengthens Yang and makes Qi run smoothly, as well as gets rid of blood stasis, pathogenic cold and pathogenic dampness. The therapeutic effects of burning smokeless moxa are from heat and infrared radiation.
