Moxibustion: A Modern Clinical Handbook

Moxibustion: A Modern Clinical Handbook

Lorraine Wilcox, L. Ac.

Written and designed to be a practical clinical handbook of moxibustion to be used by modern practitioners and students of Eastern Asian medicine in everyday clinical settings. It contains techniques and treatments as old as the Huang Di Nei Jing (Yellow Emperor's Inner Classic) and as contemporary

Included are sections on:

  • Moxibustion's specific functions and uses
  • Preventive therapy with moxibustion
  • Using needle moxa methods, moxa boxes, liquid moxa, moxa plasters and pastes
  • How to grow and process mugwort into moxibustion floss
  • Moxa prescriptions for specific conditions patients present
  • Recipes for making moxa ointments
  • The use of specific acupoints in moxa therapy

To prepare for the writing of this book, the author personally experimented with most of the techniques described in this book so that she could write clear step-by-step directions. In addition to very understandable directions, over 100 photo illustrations covering every aspect of preparation and patient care using moxa are provided where necessary. The practical, useable nature of this book will help many practitioners increase the effectiveness of their moxibustion treatments.
