What is Moxacology

Moxacology is the study of moxibustion, a traditional Chinese medicine therapy, which involves the burning of a dried herb called mugwort near the surface of the skin. When deftly applied by a skillful practitioner, moxa heat can penetrate and radiate to different sites of the body to treat specific conditions, or invigorate the bodies defense mechanism for disease prevention. There are written records that the Chinese used moxibustion to treat diseases and prevent disease for more than 2,000 years.
