But in the years I had the possibilities to meet people from Asia, I noticed they have the skin of the face and neck much more young than we have. Those have to be genetic peculiarities but the habits and cultural customs, I think, too. This is why, when I learned about some new for me Chinese traditional medicine techniques, I decided to purchase the tools and to try these ways.
One of these therapies is burning of the mugwort (artemisia) cigarettes in a kind of wooden box that you post on the painful place of your body.
Here are the photos about how it works.
I use it myself regularly for my neck aches and can list here the benefits we have. Together with my husband - because the smoke of the burning artemisia can inspire all who are present in the room (the cat does not like it and goes under the bed when I burn moxa)
So the benefits we have are:
we are more relaxed
we sleep better
the pain goes away (not forever, unfortunately)
