Acupuncture Boulder Moxibustion

Moxibustion, or “Moxa” is a Chinese medicinal technique that involves the burning of an herb called mugwort to facilitate healing. The heat stimulates the flow of blood and qi and more deeply penetrates the meridians to increase circulation, and enhances overall vitality and health.  Moxa is a remarkable ancient therapeutic modality that is believed to pre-date-acupuncture. Moxibustion has many benefits, including the ability to rotate a breech fetus into a normal position with a success rate of 75%, as published in a notable study from the Journal of the American Medical Association in 1998.
