Moxa in Motion with the Ontake method
Moxibustion is ancient. Even more ancient that needling. In modern acupuncture, however, it is often considered too time consuming or difficult to master. And yet the classics say: for chronic conditions, moxa has no equal.
Coming to the rescue of time-poor, present-day acupuncturists is the Ontake Method from Japan. This innovative technique uses a piece of bamboo filled with burning moxa wool to roll, tap and press on the acupuncture meridians using a metronome programmed to each meridian's frequency. The rhythmic application of heat, frequency and pressure triggers rapid shifts in your patients' body condition and mood.
Oran Kivity is a veteran acupuncturist from the UK. The founder of Sayoshi.com, the online directory of Japanese acupuncture, he has dedicated countless hours of clinical observation and study to integrate the knowledge of contemporary Japanese masters. Through writing and teaching he has ignited interest in Ontake, a remarkable new moxa tool from Japan, developing these dynamic new techniques further and compiling them into this practical handbook of moxibustion.
