Moxibustion is a therapeutic method of traditional Chinese medicine that involves applying heat by stimulating a series of points of the body ¬ in order to heal disorders or diseases and achieve the balance of physiological functions.
Moxibustion is used in many cases combined with acupuncture, because both techniques are not only complementary and compatible, but can enhance its healing effect. The same points are usually used for this therapy as in acupuncture, since the two therapeutic methods obey the same medical tradition and respond to the same energy channels.
