ZOU HUI & HEINER FRUEHAUF

Clinical Insights About a Neglected Modality of Chinese Medicine

Moxibustion was once regarded as one of the main modalities of Chinese medicine. During the last 75 years, however, the quality of medicinal mugwort has gone into decline and many traditional Moxa techniques have been lost. In this presentation, Dr. Liu Lihong’s passionate associate Mrs. Zou Hui gives us a passionate account of her decade-long journey to revive this forgotten therapeutic art. She relates how she chanced upon the esoteric Daoist system of Hetu Luoshu Moxibustion near sacred Mt. Qingcheng in Sichuan, and how she rediscovered China’s lost mugwort terroir near Li Shizhen’s ancestral home in Hubei. A compelling presentation outlining the characteristics of high quality mugwort and the enormous clinical potential of moxibustion for physical and emotional rebalancing.
