Maxabustion, also referred to as moxibustion or acumoxa, is the application of heat on the body resulting from the burning of a small bundle of herbs, namely mugwort or wormwood.

Maxabustion stimulates acupuncture points, promoting the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Similar to acupuncture, this practice restores the balance and flow of a patient’s energy, resulting from the heat of the burning herbs targeted to certain areas of the body.

This practice is renowned for improving overall health, in addition to treating a wider array of problems such as arthritis, digestive disorders, chemotherapy-induced nausea, and asthma. It was also documented that Maxabustion treatment helped pregnant women correct the prenatal position of their baby from breech position (bottom-first position) to normal.
