Ontake Warm Bamboo is Meridians’ signature treatment . Developed here in Malaysia by Meridans’ senior practitioner Oran Kivity, Ontake Warm Bamboo is a moxibustion technique, the application of heat to the acupuncture points and channels.
A short piece of bamboo is filled with moxa wool. When the moxa is ignited, the bamboo gets warm and can be applied to the skin as a heated massage tool. The bamboo can be held, tapped, pressed or rolled rhythmically on the skin.Additionally, with the use of a metronome, these techniques can be applied at specific frequencies of beats per minute.
Up until now this treatment has only been offered as part of a general acupuncture treatment. From May 2013 however, we are launching our new stand-alone Warm Bamboo treatments. These treatments are not aimed at symptom relief but at energising and relaxing. So if you are feeling tired, run down, anxious, stressed or stiff and tight in the muscles, this is the treatment for you!
From a patient’s point of view, this is an extremely relaxing treatment. The warmth of the bamboo, the smell of the burning moxa and the ticking of the metronome combine almost hypnotically to calm and relax the mind as the knots in your muscles melt away. It is a strong treatment, so session times are limited to 25 minutes only. This is plenty of time to feel the benefits of a whole body treatment.
You can see and learn more about Ontake Warm Bamboo on our Sound and Vision page.
We also run regular short courses in this new therapy.
