Moxibustion & So Tai Ho

The great Japanese moxibustionist Ken Sawada influenced our grand master Dai'ichi Sorimachi in Toyko to combine shiunko moxibustion to each acupuncture treatment. Golden moxibustion comes from Artemesia Vulgaris and has the ability to relax the muscles, increase blood circulation and strengthen the immune system. It has antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties and in addition to acupuncture, you receive the benefits of moxa. 

Dr. Keizo Hashimoto, MD. developed a system of exercises known as SoTai Ho to align the pelvis and spine. The four pillars of health that he developed include correct breathing, thinking, nutrition and exercise. Rather than giving his patients drugs to heal he gave them daily exercises and found that his patients healed quickly once their structure was aligned. These exercises are combined with acupuncture and moxibustion in the Seitai Shinpo system. Patient's love the ease at which they can practice these simple exercises in the comfort of their own home. 

Whether you come to the Ballincollig or Dingle acupuncture clinic, you can avail of these exercises and practice them in the comfort of your own home either lying down or standing up to keep your body out of pain and align your structure.
