Anyone who has received and practiced oriental medicine will definitely familiar with the word “moxibustion”. Because of high medicinal effects, this method has been used since 3000 year BC and nowadays 127 countries in the world are still practicing this method.
The traditional method is to put a slice of fresh ginger on the points requiring treatment, then put a handful pile of wormwood (dried and pounded) on top of that, light the wormwood pile to let the heat and wormwood oil infiltrate, warm and nourish the points. Later on, medicine has some improvents: roll the wormwood powder into a cigarette shape, finger size, light up and put near the points…
There are a lot of drawbacks in the traditional way like troublesome preparation, time wasting, easy to cause burns, and may leave scars,… and according to the aerodynamic principles, hot air fly up, taking the amount of oil needed for treatment along. This loss reduces the effectiveness of the treatment.
Therefore, the traditional moxibustion method is no longer suitable with the modern life.
