Moxibustion, (moxa for short), comes in many forms, but is essentially rolled up mugwort (also called Ai Ye), a medicinal herb used all over the world. In Chinese Medicine it is used by burning the prepared herb near or on the body (using a protective barrier between the skin and the herb).

It is said that the release of heat from the herb, opens pores in the local area, and the medicinal properties being released into the air from the herb, enters the body.
