Moxibustion is a Traditional Chinese Medicine therapy which uses 'moxa' made from a Chinese Herb called Aiye, or Mugwort. The herb is aged, and then processed into a cigar-shaped stick, which is the moxa. It is then lit with fire, and the smouldering moxa is used to apply heat indirectly to the skin surface above specific acupuncture points. Moxibustion is used to warm meridians, and believed to stimulate circulation by inducing the flow of qi (vital energy) and blood. It can be very useful for treating conditions associated with 'cold' or 'yang deficiency', and is commonly employed for infertility and the treatment of malposition of the foetus (baby in breech position).
