Moxibustion is a form of heat therapy in which dried plant materials called “moxa” are burned on or very near the surface of the skin.

Moxa is usually made from the dried leafy material of Chinese mugwort (Artemesia argyi or A.vlugaris), but it can be made of other substances as well.
A traditional Chinese Medical Treatment in which the skin is scraped to produce light bruising. It releases unhealthy elements from injured areas and stimulates blood flow and healing, creating an anti-inflammatory and immune protective effect that persists for days following a single Gua sha treatment.

When an essential oil is inhaled, the scent molecules enter the nasal cavity and stimulate the limbic system, a region in the brain that plays a role in emotion and behavior. The molecules also stimulate the nervous system, which helps to regulate heart rate, blood pressure, stress, and breathing. When used topically, the scent molecules are absorbed through the skin and inhaled. The practice of aromatherapy involves the use of highly concentrated, volatile plant oils to promote wellbeing.
