Acupuncture is a natural treatment where fine needles are inserted through the skin at specific points along the body’s meridians, creating a healing reaction within the body.
Moxibustion uses the same philosophy and is a similar method to Acupuncture, however, instead of using fine needles, a herb known as Mugwort is burnt near the acupuncture points on the body.
