Moxa seminars are organised twice a year. Moxibustion is part of Oriental medicine; it is a complementary and strengthening method that is used with many inconveniences and weaknesses. It was originally developed in the northern, colder part of China. It is still used daily in China. Moxibustion mostly involves the use of Moxa, which is dried mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris). Shiatsu practitioners use Moxa in two different forms: Moxa pressed into cigar-like sticks, and Moxa looking like “wool” combined with slices of ginger. Many forms of pain and slowed-down functioning respond very well to a Moxa treatment.

The Moxa Seminar examines the theory, use and applications of Moxa. The student will discover the possibilities of using moxa, in practice. The different applications are shown and practiced on each other.

This seminar is taught by one of the two senior teachers and two assistants. They work with odorless Moxa cigars and also use more traditional methods with "wool-like" Moxa and slices of ginger.
