Is moxibustion too difficult to apply, too risky, or too smoky? Discover the effective new moxa method from Japan that will give you rapid results – safely.



Ontake is a contemporary moxibustion tool from Japan.  A piece of bamboo is filled with burning moxa wool which is then rolled, tapped, and pressed on the meridians. The rhythmic application of heat and pressure triggers rapid shifts in your patients’ body condition and mood.

The Ontake Method is a conceptual framework for applying Ontake developed by British acupuncturist Oran Kivity. It integrates ideas from Japanese acupuncture regarding channel palpation and deficiency excess, holographic mappings, and Dr Manaka’s meridian frequencies: applying stimulation to the body in time to a metronome. When applied with these ideas, Ontake can transform your practice, relaxing the muscles, relieving pain and calming the mind within minutes.



After attending the webinar, participants of the webinar will be able to:

•    Describe the origins of Ontake in the 1960s and list three main spheres of application: root, branch, adjunctive treatment.
•    Load, light, extinguish, clean, reload, relight Ontake
•    View supplementing and draining application methods, namely rolling, tapping and super-knocking on the skin with Ontake
•    Apply a theoretical model for the treatment of midline pain by pairing anatomical opposite points on the Ren, Du, kidney and bladder channels.
•    List contraindications of Ontake moxibustion

Ontake 是一种现代艾灸工具,源自日本。一根竹子里装着燃烧的艾绒,然后在经络上滚动、轻敲和按压。热量和压力的有节奏应用会快速改变患者的身体状况和情绪。


Ontake 方法是由英国针灸师Oran Kivity开发的应用Ontake的概念框架。它整合了日本针灸的想法,包括关于经络的触诊和虚实辨证、全息图像、以及Dr Manaka’s 的经络频率:按照节拍器的节奏对身体施加刺激。当这些想法应用到Ontake上时,它可以改变你的实践方式,在几分钟内放松肌肉、缓解疼痛并平静思绪。



• 描述20世纪60年代Ontake的起源,并列出三个主要应用领域:根本、分支、辅助治疗。
• 装填、点燃、熄灭、清洁、重新装填、重新点燃Ontake。
• 查看辅助和引导应用方法,包括用Ontake在皮肤上滚动、轻敲和超重敲的方法。
• 应用一种理论模型来治疗中线疼痛,通过配对任、督、肾和膀胱经的解剖相反点位。
• 列出Ontake艾灸的禁忌。




英国针灸师Oran Kivity在欧洲、中国和日本接受过培训。自1987年以来一直从事连续的实践,专注于日本方法。2000年,他是Toyohari UK的创始成员,该组织是日本Toyohari协会在英国的分支机构。
