In Moxibustion, dried mugwort leaves, either in cigarlike stick or a paste, are lit and placed close to the acupuncture point to produce warm sensations. The heat warms the energy (Qi) and blood in the body and is useful in the treatment of diseases and the maintenance of health. Quite often pain and disease result from a blockage or improper flow of energy and blood; Moxibustion stimulates with heat to alleviate the original blockage and corrects the flow.

This method of treatment is most effective for the treatment of chronic diseases, such as indigestion, bronchial asthma, chronic diarrhea, stomachache, abdominal pain, period pain, and arthritis. Certain forms of infertility have also been found to benefit from the use of Moxibustion as part of the total treatment.
