Loquat leaf moxibustion set, with moxa tubes and various other accessories, in cardboard container, from the surgery of a British practitioner c.1996, unsigned, Japanese, 1980-1990.
Moxa or Artemisia vulgaris is a plant. Once dried, it can be burnt in a treatment known as moxibustion. This moxibustion set comes with moxa tubes and other accessories. It was manufactured in Japan in the 1980s. The set was used in the surgery of a British Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practitioner during the 1990s. TCM believes moxibustion stimulates the flow of the life force known as qi (chi) around the body. Qi is considered essential for wellbeing and health.
