Moxibustion (moxa) tradtional heat therapy applied to specific acu-points
"I have sewn a torn part of my undergarments.
I have changed the strings of my hat.
I have burnt moxa on my Stomach 36
My mind is now totally occupied with the moon over the Matsushima islands."
Haiku Master Basho Matsio 1689
Basho is now ready for his long trek having burnt moxa on acu-point Stomach (ST) 36, Zu San Li (in Pinyin). St 36 is the 36th point on the Stomach channel (meridian), it's overall effect is to regulate the body, including the immune system.
I offer individualized self-moxa consultations & tutorials

Location: Four finger widths below your kneecap, one finger width away from your shin bone.
Acupressure: apply firm, moderate pressure for up to 2 minutes. Apply to one or both legs daily. This point combines well with acu-point LI 4 on hand (see location on Headache page).
