Choseikyu® Light is very similar to the popular Choseikyu® moxa, but produces a very mild heat (much less heat than Choseikyu®). Consists of a box of 100 rolled cylinders of pure moxa, each measuring 0.4" x 0.15" dia. Also included are 11 adhesive heat shields. Each shield has a removable inner tab allowing for two levels of insulation.
What is moxibustion?
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. The intention is to warm and invigorate the flow of Qi in the body and dispel certain pathogenic influences.
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.
