Moxibustion is a warming TCM application
for cold conditions (e.g., rheumatism, diarrhea, tension, depression). The glow of mugwort or a glowing moxa cigar stimulates warmth on the acupuncture points and strengthens the self-healing powers. With the Moxa cigars there is NO direct application on the skin! In the mugwort variety, the moxa cone is placed on a thick slice of ginger on the skin and immediately removed as soon as the spot gets hot.
Gua Sha is a folk medicine TCM application.
With this "scraping method" the skin is being stimulated along the meridians by jade, horn or porcelain. This leads to a strong circulation and lpurged through the skin.
