The existence of moxibustion dates back to the Shang Dynasty (1600-1046 B.C.) and is currently practised all around Asia. It is often performed alongside acupuncture to increase body temperature and improve circulation. In the Chinese Medicine context, moxibustion is believed to strengthen life energy, also known as Qi, and act as a good analgesic. Traditionally, moxibustion and acupuncture go hand in hand, however, the treatment scope of moxibustion has been gradually expanding over the years, leading to more research on complex diseases, including cancer.
