Moxibustion has the following four main functions:
Moxibustion-Warm Channels and Disperse Coldness

Many clinical problems are caused by coldness or dampness, such as epigastric pain, abdominal pain, diarrhea or dysentery, any other local pain (neck, shoulder, back, knee etc ), and some other complicated manifestations that are caused by the nature of coldness and dampness.
Moxibustion -Support Yang to Rescue Collapse
The decline of yang gives rise to the domination of yin which may result in coldness, syncope or even a collapse. This can be treated by moxibustion to warm and support the insufficient yang qi. In practice, moxibution can be used to treat many diseases such as enuresis, prolapsed rectum, uterine prolapse, metrorrhagia, metrostaxis, and leucorrhea which are caused by insufficiency in the middle qi and the sinking or collapsing of the yang qi.

Moxibustion is able to invigorate qi movement, harmonize nutrient and defense mechanisms, resolve stagnancy in the body and stasis of the blood. Therefore, moxibustion is often used for diseases caused by stagnation of qi and blood stasis which might cause various pain or accumulation such as swelling or pain due to injury after car accident or sports.
