Moxa Cairns – Moxibustion can be ‘indirect’ where small balls of moxa are placed on the acupuncture needles that are inserted into the body and then lit; or a stick of moxa is lit and held over a particulart part of the body.  Other substances can also be placed between the moxa and the flex and the indirect method – moxa may be burned over salt or on slices of garlic or ginger.  Indirect moxibustion can also involve a moxa box – boxes of varying sizes that contain loose moxa and cover a large or small part of teh body.  The moxa is burnt within the box spreading the treatment over a larger area than a single acupuncture needle or moxa stick.
