This can be a powerful immune boosting tool you can use at home!
Moxa is used to stimulate acupuncture points through heat. Acupuncture can:

Western medicine views acupuncture as a form of therapy that releases hormones into the bloodstream, sending signals to the nervous system. Hormones, such as dopamine and serotonin, have a positive effect on the body by reducing pain, balancing emotions, strengthening the immune system and regulating organ systems.
