The Ontake Method uses a Japanese moxibustion tool made of bamboo filled with burning moxa wool to roll, tap and lightly press on the meridians. The rhythmic application of heat and pressure, especially on the back, consolidates the pulse and, working with the root treatment, can trigger rapid shifts in patients' body condition and mood.
This highly enjoyable two-hour recorded webinar explores Ontake's origins in Japan, with an overview of historical and contemporary uses. Using numerous short video clips, dynamic presentations, and frequent breaks for questions and reflection, students learn how to load and light Ontake and contrast the different application methods for deficient and excess areas along channels.
In this highly practical introductory two-hour, you will learn:
(1) How to load, light and extinguish Ontake
(2) Protocols to augment the root treatment
(3) Protocols for assessing the lustre of the skin and balancing kyo and jitsu with Ontake
(4) A simple routine for treating the back to consolidate the pulse
