Classical Moxibustion Practical Course! Pittsboro, North Carolina, May 3rd-4th, 2018

Speaker: Dr. Suzanne Robidoux Translator: Course in English Location: Pittsboro, North Carolina Date: May 3, 2018 For more information and to register, please email to ChineseMedicineTraveller@gmail.com

Come and learn some of the most effective and useful moxibustion techniques from various lineages. From Korean masters to Taiwanese techniques, family lineages from China and scientifically proven techniques of moxibustion used on pain, neurological disorders such as numbness, paralysis and viral infections. In Chinese language, the two characters of 针灸 (zhen jiu) cannot be separated and make one entity. “Zhen” meaning acupuncture or the act of needling, and “Jiu” meaning “moxibustion”. There is a common quote from the Huang Di Nei Jing (Inner Canon of the Yellow Emperor) which states: “If the disease cannot be treated successfully with acupuncture; it will be treated with moxibustion.” Moxibustion and acupuncture are often regarded as two legs of one medical system; one cannot go as far without the other. Unfortunately, moxibustion techniques have somehow been forgotten and are not so common in this era.

   

Dr. Robidoux has spent over 2 decades learning, developing and treating patients with various types of moxibustion treatments. She has used moxa treatments to save patients who were diagnosed with incurable diseases and were on the verge of death. Based on her clinical experience, she realized that Chinese medicine practitioners should always have the knowledge of moxa treatments available and fresh to offer to their patients.

   

In this seminar, Dr. Robidoux will bring you a full day of learning the importance and application of over 10 different types of moxibustion treatments as well as understand when to use which technique. From cold to heat syndromes, from excess to deficiency patterns; from pain, prolapse, inflammation, skin disorders and much more. While teaching these techniques, Dr. Robidoux will discuss some interesting case studies of severe pain, paralysis, anorexia and life-threatening bleeding disorders as well as infertility and multiple sclerosis.

   

In addition, Suzanne incorporates these moxa teachings with the classical understanding of the energy body and teaches techniques to practitioners so they can have a better quality of life and health. Adequate time will be given for practitioners to practice these techniques and gain the necessary experience to apply them in clinic immediately.
