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.


During this 2 day course, Dr. Robidoux will illustrate the importance of moxibustion in clinic as well as teach the clinical application of over 10 different types of moxibustion treatments fitting different disease and symptom presentations. You will learn which moxibustion technique to use in cold or heat syndromes, as well as excessive to deficient patterns. Learn which technique to use for joint pain, organ prolapse, degenerative diseases such as Parkinson's, multiple sclerosis, chronic joint pain and bleeding disorders. We will also discuss case studies of severe pain, paralysis, anorexia and life threatening bleeding disorders with clinical results.


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.
