Moxibustion is an important invention of the Chinese nation, which originated as early as in the Dan commune period of the primitive society. With indirect moxibustion, a moxa cigar is held over the skin until the area turns red. It can be used to prevent diseases and maintain health as part of tonification therapy to help strengthen the organs and immune system by warming the meridians and expel cold. It can be used to promote circulation over areas of chronic pain or muscle tension.
