Description
In Quebec many of the illnesses we suffer from are caused by the effects of living in a cold climate. Moxabustion, traditionally considered a partner technique to acupuncture, is the heating of specific acupuncture points with burning mugwort to stimulate circulation. It is a highly under used therapy that can be used to treat many conditions stemming from cold and deficiency.

This course will teach students how to safely use this technique to support treatment in a variety of complaints, ranging from pain syndromes to digestive and gynecological problems, to coughs and the common cold. There will be plenty of time devoted to hands-on practice and students will both give and receive Moxa treatments. Therapists will appreciate the efficacy of these techniques in helping their clients feel better and clients will appreciate the comfort and warmth of the techniques themselves. Everyone loves Moxa.

Although Moxa therapy is often used to great effect on serious illnesses by medical professionals, it has also traditionally been used in China by massage practitioners and grandmothers to promote and maintain the health of clients and families. This course is appropriate for anyone who recognizes that the cold is bad for us and would like to know about this time honoured way of keeping warm.
