Remember the ‘Hotshots’ you used to put in your mitts while you were skiing as a kid? Think of these as a bigger, better, more therapeutic version.
Moxabustion, a technique used in Traditional Chinese Medicine, is the burning of the herb ‘Mugwort’ for the purposes of warming and tonifying. These packs don’t actually burn but get very warm and are great for many conditions including: arthritis, muscular pain, contusion, lumbago, menstrual cramps, sprains and intestinal cramps. They are also great for keeping your hands warm in cold weather!
