According to alternative medicine practitioners, the heat generated during moxibustion helps increase the flow of vital energy (aka. "qi" or "chi") throughout the body via certain pathways ( "meridians"). In traditional Chinese medicine, stimulating the flow of chi is considered essential to achieving health and wellness. In fact, some physical and mental health problems are thought to develop as a result of blockages in the flow of chi.
