Explorations in Traditional Japanese Moxibustion
Junji Mizutani Sensei
London – 24th and 25th September 2016 at
the City College of Acupuncture, University House, 55 East Road, London N1 6AH
This is a practical workshop and can be used with any style of acupuncture.
“Junji Mizutani was led to the practice of traditional Japanese medicine through a teacher practising the Sawada style. He has a passion for traditional approaches coupled with a no-nonsense pragmatism. Direct moxa has a central role in the Sawada style and he has remained close to his roots while absorbing other approaches. Junji has established himself as an authority and proponent of moxibustion in North America.”
Moxibustion Therapy was mentioned as an integral part of treatment in the Huang Di Nei Jing Su Wen (150 BCE). It is a stand-alone therapy, useful in the treatment of a wide variety of conditions. It is also one of the most useful health preservation therapies. Junji will give an introduction to moxibustion, its functions and indications. This workshop will focus on many of the most widely used techniques as developed by Japanese practitioners, with examples of treatment strategies. Junji will demonstrate all techniques and there will be time for practice and questions. He will cover a variety of treatment strategies, local, whole body (Sawada style), special effect points, autonomic nervous system balancing, needle and moxa combinations etc.
Participants will learn:
• The functions and indications of traditional Japanese moxibustion therapy
• How to palpate and accurately locate points requiring moxa
• The practical application of direct moxa to acupoints
• Approaches to Gynaecology, Musculoskeletal and Digestive disorders.
• Autonomic nervous system balancing treatment
• Junji will also share his personal clinical experience and cases and demonstrate how to use this in treatments.
Junji Mizutani is a leading authority on Moxibustion and has established his approach over decades of practice. He graduated from Japan Central Acupuncture College in Tokyo in 1983 and obtained his license to practice shiatsu, acupuncture, and moxibustion in Japan. In 1983 he continued his studies and also taught in Toronto, Canada. Mizutani sensei travels widely and is a well-known and popular teacher in North America. He is a founding member, and director of the North American Journal of Oriental Medicine devoted to Traditional Japanese medicine.
