In this course Paul Movsessian will cover:

General Information on Moxibustion used in Direct Moxa and Special Points, History of Direct Moxa in Classical Literature, Case Studies on the use and Explanation of Direct Moxa in Hot Conditions - How Yang Moxa Can Create Yin Fluids, Research Study on Direct Moxa to treat Spleen Qi and Yang Deficiency Fatigue.
Finding the Alive Point for Moxa: In Japan, the concept of living and functioning points is often ascribed to Takeshi Sawada. Points are more than anatomical landmarks; they are manifestations of a functional problem in the body. As such, they are normally dormant, becoming active when a pathological condition begins to form. Point location based solely on anatomical knowledge will be less effective than live assessment.
