Moxa In Motion by Oran Kivity

Moxibustion is ancient. Even more ancient than needling. In modern acupuncture, however, it is often considered too time consuming or difficult to master. And yet the classics say: for chronic conditions, moxa has no equal.

Coming to the rescue of time-poor, present-day acupuncturists is the Ontake Method from Japan. This innovative technique uses 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 patients' body condition and mood.

Oran Kivity is a veteran acupuncturist from the UK. The founder of, the online directory of Japanese acupuncture, he has dedicated countless hours of clinical observation and study to integrate the knowledge of contemporary Japanese masters. Through writing and teaching he has ignited interest in Ontake, a remarkable new moxa tool from Japan, developing these dynamic new techniques further and compiling them into this practical handbook of moxibustion.

In this book, you will learn:

  • Dr Manaka's meridian frequencies and how to apply them
  • Branch treatments for symptom relief
  • Root treatments for whole-body regulation
  • The integration of Dr Tan's holographic models with Ontake for the rapid relief of pain in the neck, back and joints


Moxa in Motion presents a step-by-step guide to clinical practice utilising the Ontake Method. Easily integrated into any style of acupuncture, Shiatsu or Tuina, the Ontake Method will boost your results and build your practice.
