Course Overview
This is a one-hour seminar on moxa. The word for acupuncture in Chinese has both the character for needle and the character for moxa. Although a needle is always considered by Westerners to be in the word we translate as acupuncture, the other half of the word, moxa, was not translated into English. Knowing about moxa is a basic part of the practice of Chinese medicine. The seminar covers moxa's botanical source, traditional and commercial preparations, how moxa is graded, why there are different types, and multiple forms of application. Emphasis will also be placed be on learning about the art of Japanese cone moxa, (o'kyu) as used in Kiiko Matsumoto Style (KMS) acupuncture. Visuals of the plant, the products, and applications will be shown.

    A surprising amount of useful information provided in a short and concise format. Totally well produced video without so much as a wasted moment, unlike so many other distance learning courses. Fantastic!!! Definitely going to take my moxa treatment more seriously as therapy in the clinic.
