Course Two of A Hands-On Moxibustion Workshop: The Versatility of Indirect Moxibustion
In school, we hear about moxibustion on ginger, garlic, salt, or Fu Zi, but are you clear on the different methods and uses of each? Besides these commonly used materials, we can also make herbal "cakes" for moxibustion. Each cake treats something different, depending on which herbs and points are selected. In addition, we can use orange peel, peach leaves, paper soaked in milk, cloth soaked in salt water, and even eggs as isolating substances for indirect moxibustion.
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.

She is on the faculty of two schools in the Los Angeles area and is the author or translator of four books, two of them on moxibustion (Moxibustion: The Power of Mugwort Fire and Moxibustion: A Modern Clinical Handbook). Lorraine loves to find different moxibustion techniques from the old Chinese books and try them out. She also likes some of the modern innovations in moxibustion from Korea and Japan, particularly the ones that do not involve electricity.
