British acupuncturist Oran Kivity trained in Europe, China, and Japan. He has been in continuous practice since 1987, specialising in Japanese acupuncture and moxibustion methods and teaching internationally. He has written two books about Ontake Warm Bamboo, a new moxibustion tool from Japan.
WHAT IS ONTAKE?
Ontake Warm Bamboo is a moxibustion technique with two additional components: pressure and rhythm. A short piece of bamboo is filled with moxa wool. When the moxa is ignited, the bamboo gets hot and can be held, tapped, pressed or rolled along the acupuncture channels. Additionally, using a metronome, these techniques can be applied rhythmically at specific frequencies of beats per minute.
