Dried Ai ye, a warming chinese herb is rolled into a stick, a pinch, or compressed into charcoal. The roll is heated until an ember is formed at the tip. That tip is then held above the skin to apply heat to the area. It is used to remove cold pain, and to promote circulation in stagnant tight areas. The warming smoke is soothing and slightly mentholated.
Moxibustion is used for Breech, Dysmenorrhea, Arthritis, Diarrhea, Abdominal pain, and Muscular pain.
