Course Overview
In this course Paul Movsessian will cover: Introduction to general use and application of direct moxibustion: Application amount of moxa is based on the constitution of the patient and whether they are dealing with a deficient or excess condition. 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. Making Shiunko Ointment Or Purple Cloud Cream: Shiunko is used with okyu (direct moxa) to both protect the skin and to allow for the moxa to stick to the skin. Moxa Training Board And Paper For Direct Moxibustion. Okyu - Direct Moxibustion: Various styles and methods of rolling and using okyu as well as dosage of application.

    About Paul Movsessian

    Paul Movsessian has been in practice since 1986. After graduation he moved from Australia to the USA to further his studies. His interest was in the Japanese style of acupuncture and moxibustion where he initially trained under Stephen Birch & Junko Ida, learning the treatment techniques of Dr. Manaka and Meridian Therapy. He also studied extensively with Kiiko Matsumoto, and was exposed to a wide variety of styles taught in Japan from various practitioners. From 1989 until 1996 he maintained a busy practice, lectured and undertook constant postgraduate studies. Some of his training included the study of Dr. Shen's pulse methods under Dr. Leon Hammer, Sôtai & Shiatsu from Kikuko Zutrau Miyazaki, and various Meridian Therapy styles. He continued his training in the Toyohari system of Meridian Therapy under the guidance of such teachers as Akihiro Takai, Shuho Taniuchi, Koryo Nakada, Shozo Takahashi, Akira Fukushima, Hideki Sagawa, Haruo Amano, and Toshio Yanagishita visiting Japan and Europe regularly. He was encouraged by Stephen Birch, that on his return to Australia he should continue teaching the material he so generously gave, hoping that Japanese style acupuncture and Dr. Manaka's work could begin to receive exposure and acceptance there. Since returning to Australia, Paul has been lecturing extensively across the country, and established a post graduate certificate course in Dr. Manaka's protocols. He continued to lecture in the USA, Canada, New Zealand bringing the foundations of the Japanese styles to Australia in 1997. In 2002 he established the Australasian Branch of the Toyohari Association for Australia and New Zealand with the collaboration of Dr. Ted Pearson and Michael Hook. He was the President for many years and then Academic Dean, Registered Academic Practitioner and a qualified teacher with the Toyo Hari Association of Japan until retiring from the Association to pursue the establishment of broader programs. He has had the privilege of being able to continue studying in Japan over many years under the guidance of some of the greatest teachers in various styles. In the Moxibustion Tradition this includes Shinma Hideo, son of Fukaya who is one of the greatest moxibustionists of Japan and inventor of the use of the bamboo tube. Hirato Motoshiro who developed the slotted bamboo tube and shield moxa technique. Sakmoto Koichi a fifth generation moxabustionist who has 150 year tradition in his family. Fukushima Tetsuya skilled in Fukaya style, Hata Minae who developed the Nepal Moxa Method, Yashikawa Masako who has developed the Yin Yang Taikyoku method, Sugiyama Isao a classical acupuncturists, and various other teachers that he has continued to study and learn from. Currently, Paul is running a successful clinic in the Blue Mountains in Australia and lecturing extensively to practitioners sharing many new treatment strategies and skills to integrate within their practice and produce powerful clinical results.
