Zhen Jiu therapy or acupuncture (acupuncture therapy) is a branch of traditional Chinese medicine dedicated to the prevention and treatment of diseases by affecting the body's energy system. Tszyu is part of the therapy that deals with the so-called "cauterization" of acupuncture points.
The process is called cauterization and, accordingly, causes unhealthy associations with burns, which people driven to despair by the state of their own health in the ecstasy of an attack of masochism inflict on themselves or with the help of wild narrow-eyed healers-sorcerers-shamans. Moreover, the image of these doctors allows you to assess the degree of study of history in the depths of centuries and the degree of imagination of the listener.
If you look into it, it turns out that no one burns anyone's skin with any wormwood cigars, the Sicilians have nothing to catch here. Moxa is brought to the bioactive point at a distance sufficient for a relatively strong thermal effect. If you have the opportunity to keep your hands over an open fire, for example, a fire, then you are well aware that even fire does not cause burns. The maximum warming of the skin at the location of the point may be accompanied by redness.
Tszyu is only held on 8 days of the new moon.
The procedure refers to a stimulating massage of the points.
Heating is carried out with moxes – sticks or cigars of herbs, as a rule, the composition of the sticks includes wormwood. "The leaves of wormwood are bitter and pungent in taste, when used in small quantities, heat is formed, in large quantities – a strong heat. By nature, wormwood is a true Yang and has the ability to restore Yang when it is depleted. It can open twelve main channels, pass through three Yin channels to regulate qi and blood, remove dampness and cold… When burned, it penetrates into all channels, eliminating hundreds of diseases."
You can buy moxes in Chinese stores, you can use Indian sticks for aromatherapy.
You can make moxes yourself

The sensation of burning on the skin appears at the moment of approaching the "beak" and immediately disappears as soon as the cigar is removed. The duration of stimulating tszyu is 3-5 minutes.
