Moxa is made with mugwort leaf, and it helps to warm the merdians, promote blood circulation, relieve bruising and dispel dampness. After the warmth of moxa, the skin has partial increase of blood circulation and improves metabolism. It is important to be careful not to burn your skin.

2. From your big toe to inner knee, to your inner calves, go back and forth with warm smoke for 2-3 times. Repeat on both legs.
3. From your thumb to joint of your hands to inner forearm, go back and forth with warm smoke for 2-3 times. Repeat on both arms.
4. Use moxibustion slowly and move when you feel the warm to avoid burns.
