Illustrated Chinese Moxibustion Techniques and Methods

Jessica Kingsley Publishers, Singing Dragon

This authoritative text provides a complete overview of Chinese moxibustion techniques and methods, including detailed treatments and contraindications for a wide range of conditions.

The authors cover the fundamentals of theory as well as the skills and techniques practitioners will need, and provide a detailed summary of all of the acupoints commonly used in moxatherapy. The book also covers the ways in which moxatherapy can be used to cultivate general health and wellbeing in patients, and explains in detail how to treat a wide range of complaints; for each complaint, descriptions of typical cases and the acupoints and procedures needed for treatment are provided.

Extensively illustrated with photographs which clearly demonstrate clinical procedures, this is an essential reference for practitioners and students of acupuncture.

llustrated Chinese Moxibustion - Techniques and Methods is 'very Chinese' - personal shorthand for a mix of positive attributes

blended with the cultural idiosyncrasies and artefacts of the translation process that we have come to know and love... This is neat and, as with many of the numerous other interesting clinical tips to be found here, is obviously born out of practical experience... All in all, this book succeeds in delivering a comprehensive and enlightening Chinese-style presentation on the practice of moxibustion. This book succeeds in delivering a comprehensive and enlightening Chinese-style presentation on the practice of moxibustion... Overall, as a student text or for one wishing to develop high-level clinical moxa skills I warmly recommend this book.

In my opinion, Illustrated Chinese Moxibustion is an excellent reference book for anyone practising moxibustion, and an ideal read for all those interested in this type of treatment. It is based on sound ancient TCM principles, but written by modern practitioner. – Journal of the Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists
