Stick-on Moxa products were developed as a safer, more convenient way of applying moxa directly on the acupuncture point.
A small amount of moxa is rolled up and placed vertically on a cardboard barrier that has a mild adhesive on its underside. When lit, the stick-on moxa can be placed directly on the moxa point and, due to the adhesive, will remain in place. The cardboard barrier has a small hole under the moxa that transmits the heat from the burning ember down onto the skin. These handy products allow the practitioner to apply heat on more than one point at time or can be given, with proper instruction, to the patient for home use.
