Moxibustion for Fatigue and Malaise
Moxibustion is a common treatment modality in Japanese style acupuncture. It involves burning the herb Artemisia vulgaris to warm the skin at acupuncture points. Clinical experience suggests that moxibustion is particularly beneficial for patients with complaints of fatigue and malaise. The reported effects of moxibustion are thought to be associated with regulation of the autonomic nervous system.
