ON-DEMAND COURSE • ONtake Warm Bamboo

Hirata Zone Therapy
Using the Ontake Method 

Hirata Zone Therapy focuses on dermatomes. It is a unique contribution from the Japanese tradition that lends itself to the use of the warm bamboo method.

The Ontake warm bamboo method specifically combines the healing power of mugwort, with the dynamics of the acupuncture channels, and the connectivity of bodywork. Explore the healing that can arise from the resonance of rhythm, motion and heat.
