It involves burning moxa, a cone or stick made of ground mugwort leaves, on or near your body’s meridians and acupuncture points.

Kidney Stones

Kidney Stones I was in the market for an acupuncturist as a last-minute attempt to pass a kidney stone before I had to go in for surgery. Zen was prompt in returning my email and fit me into her schedule. She was competent, kind, and helpful during a very difficult time in my life. And I did end up passing the stone the next day!
