Guest Speakers




Japanese moxibustion (Okyu) includes different techniques, all focused on achieving a quick and pleasant recovery of health. Moxibustion is known in the West as a technique of Chinese medicine but it should be noted that under the Japanese approach, moxa techniques have reached a unique therapeutic refinement level. This makes them a very attractive therapy for anyone wishing to optimize their treatment strategies and resources in any area.

Those seminars are open to general public and especially anyone interested in Chinese Medicine or structural therapy; acupuncturists, massage therapists, etc.

There are 3 different seminars you can register to (open to all levels, no prerequesite), see descriptions below. The seminars will be given in English and in French. Places are limited.







Saturday, June 1st and Sunday, June 2nd, 2024 (2 days)

Introduction seminar is a way of having a broad view about this thrilling field. The techniques of okyu can be graduated from very soft (subtle techniques) to very strong (physical and structure techniques). On the subtle sense, the heat of the okyu is understood under an energy concept (Qi supplementation or dispersion) and not thermal. One good example is the chinetsukyu (indirect technique) a technique developed to work on the surface level, directly to the Wei Qi.

On the other hand, there is the tonetsukyu (direct technique) maybe the most special moxibustion technique that exists because it consists in the application of very tiny cones with the size of a grain of rice at specific points. This technique allows to regulate the energetic, blood and lymphatic situation of the tissues working on the so-called “living” points. Prioritizing the development of manual sensitivity in the search for “living points” and by applying the tiny cones of high quality mugwort, a level of efficiency without equal is achieved. One of its particularities lies, among other things, in the way of understanding the treatment, that is, the whole technique is aimed at treating the situation that the patient suffers in real time. There are no assumptions or speculations, but clear evidence of what the situation is and what are the changes that we are causing through the treatment.

Through this type of moxibustion we get a stimulus for the immune system and a rebalancing throughout the channel system, which in turn will regulate any organic or functional disorder. The remission of pain and the recovery of functionality in complicated cases is usually very spectacular for its speed and comfort.

Every human being in this world has a unique posture that defines him as someone special. Although it is a common aspect of everyone, we know very little about our own posture. Usually, people suffer from posture and think that posture is the way of sitting or the way of walking, the postural habits, or consequences of those but that is not the posture.

Now let me define for you what posture is:

Posture is the result of the adding of position in space of the different structures that make up the human body and the overall mechanical relationships between them. Mechanical relationships are constituted by the balance between the different muscular chains, the fascia and the channels.

Posture should never be considered good or bad, it should be considered that the situation gives or does not give problems. This means that often we think that it is good or bad posture only in relation to the social idea of posture (typical and common idea that walking stiff means walking upright, and even a stiff body means pain and fatigue). Something for us to be concerned about is if our posture creates dysfunction and pain, or if it makes relationships with other people difficult.

An optimized posture is the posture that does not cause dysfunction or pain. It can be considered beautiful and healthy while allowing natural, elegant, and harmonious movement.


Moxibustion and posture? KINSEIKYU is the answer.
Kinseikyu is a new method that has achieved postural rebalancing of the body to suffer fewer injuries and achieve a healthier appearance. In Japanese language, Kin- means balance, sei- means posture and -kyu means moxibustion. Then Kinseikyu is postural balance with moxibustion. Applying this method, the posture is changed immediately. It is also a new way of using moxibustion because these tools can modify the physical structure to obtain effects on the structure itself, on organic, emotional, and mental functioning. The applications are therefore numerous (pain, organic dysfunctions, emotional issues).

This discipline is a good idea for anyone who is concerned about patients who repeat and repeat the same structural problems (back pain, joint pain, dysfunction, etc.), for no apparent reasons, or for all professionals who want to obtain a comprehensive global understanding of the body and they want to integrate another way of treat the disease. To work with Kinseikyu is to recover the lost spaces (out and inside the body).

We use a special test, based on neurological brain skills, which allows us to understand the body and channels unbalance. The application of moxibustion techniques and a special manual fascial release technique at key points of the posture will release the muscular chains in trouble and restore postural and channel balance in a gentle and pleasant way.

This seminar is to deepen all the aspects that make up the way of understanding and practicing moxibustion by master Isaburo Fukaya. Deeply rooted in traditional practices and methods, it revises and optimizes this same classical understanding to provide an increase in effectiveness and efficiency. Each of the style rules will be reviewed in depth to understand the details that make the Fukaya style a reference in the current understanding of moxibustion. The analysis of the treatments carried out and recorded by the master will allow the practitioner to create ‘the mind of the moxibustor’.


Original style by Isaburo Fukaya
Delving deeper into the 10 rules of style
Classic special points and variations.

Felip Caudet has been working as a physiotherapist and acupuncturist since 1999, and specializes in Japanese moxibustion. He studied with masters Tetsuya Fukushima and Hideo Shinma (son of Master Fukaya). Currently, Felip is recognized as the fourth in line of teachers of the Fukaya style of moxibustion due to his developments and contributions to the style. He also developed a revolutionary method of moxibustion called the Kinseikyu method (Posture Balance with Moxibustion).

He has published several books, some translated into other languages, on moxibustion and articles in international journals such as the North American Journal of Oriental Medicine, Acu or Osaka Shinkyu Journal. Today he combines his clinical activity in Spain with teaching all over the world (Japan, Brazil, France, United Kingdom, Denmark, Italy, Portugal, Netherlands).
