In Chinese language, the two characters of 针灸 (zhen jiu) cannot be separated and make one entity. “Zhen” meaning acupuncture or the act of needling, and “Jiu” meaning “moxibustion”. There is a common quote from the Huang Di Nei Jing (Inner Canon of the Yellow Emperor) which states: “If the disease cannot be treated successfully with acupuncture; it will be treated with moxibustion.” Moxibustion and acupuncture are often regarded as two legs of one medical system; one cannot go as far without the other. Unfortunately, moxibustion techniques have somehow been forgotten and are not so common in this era.
Based on her clinical experience, she realized that Chinese medicine practitioners should always have the knowledge of moxa treatments available and fresh to offer to their patients. This is a two-days intensive course with a practicum. Places are limited. Register now.
