Courses / Moxa
What is Net of Knowledge?


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.

*CEU/CPD ApprovalsSome accreditation bodies have course approval expirations. If the approval expires, you will see a notice next to the name with a date of expiration: "[Until YYYY/MM/DD]". Please factor this date into your own renewal deadline. If an approval expires, you will be able to request that it is renewed and we will submit it for you within 2 business days. Renewals normally come back to us after 30 days. If your accreditation body is not listed under the "Approved" section, you may find it under the "Pending" section. That means that it is either currently pending approval, or that it is available for you to request: "[Upon Request]". New course approvals usually come back to us after 45 days. We use an automated system within our platform that allows you to make these requests in an easy and convenient way. Just visit the course page in your Net of Knowledge account and click the "Request Approval" button at the top. Each "Course and CEUs/CPDs" purchase grants you 1 request per accreditation body.
