From a Chinese Medicine perspective, viruses can be considered an external pathogenic Wind that invades the body. But not everyone gets sick; why is that? Some immune systems are better equipped to deal with these invasions.
Traditional Chinese Medicine believes that everyone can enhance their immunity to better prepare against viral invasions and other pathogens. In this lecture, Peilin Li will give you an introduction to how viruses work from both Western and Chinese Medicine perspectives. He will also teach you how you can use self-massage, or acupressure, to enhance your overall immunity and protect against invasions.
Peilin Li brings more than thirty years of interdisciplinary experience, trained both as a Medical Doctor and acupuncturist. He has spent a decade researching immunology and virology at both Harvard and the University of California. Currently, Peilin is the president of the Acupuncture Research Institute of New Zealand and a faculty member at the New Zealand School of Acupuncture and TCM.

Moxibustion is ancient. Even more ancient than needling. In modern acupuncture, however, it is often considered too time-consuming, too risky or too difficult to master. And yet the classics say: for chronic conditions, moxa has no equal.
Coming to the rescue of time-poor, risk-averse, present-day acupuncturists is the Ontake Method from Japan. This innovative approach uses a piece of bamboo filled with burning moxa wool to roll, tap and press on the 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 but this method generates only a little smoke.
In this course, you will learn:
(1) Dr Manaka's meridian frequencies and how to apply them
(2) Protocols for symptom relief
(3) Protocols for whole-body regulation
(4) The integration of Dr Tan's holographic models with Ontake for the rapid relief of pain
Presented by Oran Kivity and compered by Michael Max from the Qiological podcast, the format is varied and dynamic, with lectures, PowerPoints, group Q&A sessions and teaching videos. Each lesson is linked to a section in a fifty-page workbook packed with learner-centred quizzes and exercises. Engagingly filmed, produced and edited to hold the attention of distance learners, Moxa in Motion presents a step-by-step guide to utilizing the Ontake Method that will leave you confident in your new skills and more effective in your practice.
