Course description

Ontake Warm Bamboo is a ground-breaking new moxibustion technique based on Doctor Manaka’s theory of Meridian Frequencies. Heated bamboo is applied on the skin rhythmically at specific frequencies of beats per minute, according to the meridian affected. 

 

This meridian frequency treatment brings about rapid changes in body condition and relieves pain fast. It will greatly enhance your clinical effectiveness and, very importantly, patients love it. The application of Ontake will deepen your palpation skills, literally bringing you closer in touch with the channel system and broadening your understanding of its dynamic interrelationships.

 

Day One of the workshop covers everything you need to know about the basics of loading, lighting and applying bamboo treatment. As well as creating more time for practice,  Day Two explores symptom relief with bamboo in much greater detail. This includes guidelines on treating specific conditions and holographic models for pain relief developed by Dr Tan and adapted for use with bamboo.
