Ontake, Moxa in Motion

Ontake Method from Japan: the  rhythmic application of heat and pressure with heated bamboo for mind-body healing.  

The method can easily be integrated into any meridian based practice, whatever your style of acupuncture or bodywork may be.

A gentle blend of smoke, warmth, rhythm, resonance and presence

The Ontake method from Japan is an innovative technique using a piece of bamboo filled with burning moxa wool to roll, tap and press on the acupuncture meridians using a metronome programmed to each meridian’s frequency.

The rhythmic application of heat, frequency and pressure triggers rapid shifts in your patient’s body condition and mood. The method can be integrated into any meridian based practice, whatever your style of acupuncture or bodywork may be.
