Moxibustion Elective Class in Fall 2013

Course Description:
Moxibustion is one half of what the Chinese call
針灸 zhēnjiǔ (Acupuncture-Moxibustion) yet in modern times, schools and books have emphasized acupuncture and neglected moxibustion. In this class we will explore the clinical practice of moxibustion. Besides discussing issues such as how to set up your clinic for using moxibustion, functions, safety, and nourishing life with moxibustion, we will discuss and demonstrate the many techniques, including making moxa cones, moxa sticks, and moxa floss; direct and indirect moxibustion, warm needle, medicinal application moxibustion, pressing moxibustion and suspended moxibustion. Participants will practice these techniques and we will make 紫云膏Zǐ Yún Gāo Purple Cloud Ointment in class.

Greetings From The AMU Student Council !! 

Your new representatives are Billy Wang and Stephanie Edman.

We are pleased to announce the launch of the AMU Student Website.  Check us out at website and give us your opinion on the following:

1      Should we stay on a quarterly planning schedule?
Up until now, AMU has been a quarterly system.  Every quarter, Dr. Jiang puts out a preliminary schedule and we all ask for changes and petition for the classes we need.  It has been suggested that instead of doing this every quarter; we only do this once a year.

Tell us what you think at schedule poll.

2      Mistakes in the clinic entrance exam.
 We are on it but we need your help!  Have you found a mistake in the clinic entrance exam prep?  If you have to go to Mistakes blog, make sure you put in the category, (WM, OM, HB, etc...), section, the question number, and what the mistake is. 

 3      Customize the new book store.
To make our bookstore more useful to both of student and staff, administration is considering online ordering.  Here's how it would work:

You would order the book you want on the AMU website. 
When the book is in you may pick it up and pay for it at the bookstore.  

 Tell us what you think at online ordering poll.

And finally, a big thanks you to:

Billy Wang – for making an awesome website
Dr. Lorraine Wilcox – for two amazing Moxa Club Seminars
Yvonne Zhuang – for translating the Moxa Club announcements into Chinese

Please enjoy your new student website and thank you for letting us be of service.  


Billy & Stef
