Is moxibustion too difficult to apply, too risky or too smoky? Discover the effective new moxa method from Japan that gets rapid results – safely.


Moxibustion is ancient. Even more ancient than needling. In modern acupuncture, however, it is often considered too time-consuming or difficult to master. And yet the classics say: for chronic conditions, moxa has no equal.

Coming to the rescue of time-poor, present-day acupuncturists is the Ontake Method from Japan. This innovative approach uses a piece of bamboo filled with burning moxa wool to roll, tap and press on the meridians using a metronome programmed to each meridian’s frequency. The rhythmic application of heat, frequency and pressure triggers rapid shifts in your patients’ body condition and mood but this method generates only a little smoke.

This course is a dynamic mixture of theory and practice. You will learn:

  • The Ontake Method – Rhythmic moxibustion methods from Japan
  • Dr Manaka’s meridian frequencies
  • Ontake 1 2 3 – Adapting Dr Tan’s holographic system to Ontake
  • Palpation skills
  • Clinical applications, indications and dosage

These methods and techniques can be integrated into any kind of meridian-based bodywork method, including acupuncture, shiatsu and tuina.
