Ilan Ben Nissan  
"The Origins, Background and Production of Moxibustion" Ilan Ben-Nissan

Upon completing his Bachelor of Health Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine at UTS, Ilan travelled to China to attain a Diploma of Internal Medicine, Acupuncture & Massage from the Japan-China Friendship Hospital, Beijing.

Then Ilan went to live in Japan and work with a highly regarded acupuncturist, in a traditional five year mentorship. Ilan was immersed in the Eastern lifestyle and philosophy to the point of learning the language to study Chinese medical texts written over 2000 years ago.  He is currently a PhD candidate in moxa. He also is a tutor and a practitioner in the UTS student clinic and runs a very busy acupuncture clinic in Enmore NSW.

Moxibustion is possibly the oldest known therapy recorded with the first mention of it dating back to 168 BCE. It involves burning moxa for therapeutic benefit in Chinese medicine on the body. The characters for the word Acupuncture actually include needle and moxa. Moxa has become the forgotten partner to Acupuncture.  Ilan will talk about the background and origins of moxa, moxa production from your garden to a product you can use, explore some of the different clinical applications specifically for reflexologists and the possible benefits from this therapy.
