Course Four of A Hands-On Moxibustion Workshop: MoreThan You Ever Knew About Moxa Sticks
Pressing moxibustion was the original method of using the moxa stick. It is a much more efficient method of delivering focused head and moxa qi than suspended moxibustion. Because it is more efficient, it is quicker and less smoke is released into the air. Since medicated cloths are sometimes used with pressing moxibustion, instructions to make your own cloths are included with the class.
These books have been assigned to expand upon and complement the material covered in the recorded lectures. As a student in this course you may purchase any of the listed books at a special 10% discount.
