I just had to ask that question because that was the question I asked myself when I opened up my first box of moxa in my acupuncture class in my third year of TCM school. The label on the box read "Moxa Punk" which prompted me to ask myself, "What on earth is moxa punk???". Images of angry punks smashing guitars on a stage wearing leather and chains flashed through my head. I have to admit,I kind of liked that imageand I intended to hang on to its intrinsic "street cred" value because at that moment, in my eyes, it had just raised acupuncture and TCM, to a whole new level of coolness.
Now, you may be wondering at this point what does "punk" have to do with what I do in my practice?
