Treatment of postural and psycho-emotionel imbalance with Japanese Moxibustion Techniques.
By Felip Caudet Piñana. Physiotherapist and acupuncturist.
While in the western medicine body and mind are conceived as two separated things, in oriental medicine body and mind are same thing in different densities but in polar circumstances. As we define Yin/Yang, we can consider Body as Yin aspect and Mind as Yang. This reality allows us to understand how external body can show us emotional imbalances very quickly, because when we want to express one emotion we are accompanied by the body. At the same time, body helps us to be adapted to the emotion sometimes in a protective or an expressive way.
We can read the body posture to identify which emotions we have suffered and how they are installed. Some muscles are able to keep emotions along life. Working meridians and structures involved in the processes of adaptation and emotional keeping we can free people from physical and emotional pain. Kinseikyu is a new discipline which achieves the body postural rebalancing in order to suffer less injuries, to achieve a more healthy appearance and to get better emotional understanding and management. In Japanese language, Kin means balance, sei means posture and kyu means moxibustion. Then Kinseikyu is postural balance with moxibustion.
It’s also a new way to use moxibustion, because moxibustion can change the physical structure with all the consequences on the energy and mind level.
This discipline is a good idea for all that are worried about patients who repeat and repeat the same structural problems (back pain, joint pain, dysfunctions, etc…) without apparent reasons (sometimes emotional and sometimes physical), for people who want to wake up how to manage body in front of emotional disturbances or for all the professionals who want to get a global understanding of the body. The application of moxibustion, at key points of the body, will allow us to restore postural and emotional balance in a gentle and pleasant way.
This is a seminar to expand your knowledge about the use of moxibustion and to hear and observe the body-mind under a new view.

Later, he studied Physiotherapy at the Ramon Llull University (2000) and he got graduate programs of specialization (cardio-respiratory physiotherapy and postural Mézières Method). After sailing for many years in clinical practice and teaching in the middle, he had the fortune to meet Japanese techniques. Later, Tetsuya Fukushima (Japan), teacher of teachers, introduced him to the secrets of direct moxibustion. In continuous contact with him and other Japanese masters like Hideo Shinma (son of Isaburo Fukaya), he has continued the fascinating and deep journey of japanese moxibustion. Now is member of the Tokyo Kyu-ho Study Group and Director of Okyu Gakko Barcelona (first Japanese moxibustion school outside of Japan)(www.okyugakkobarcelona.com). Due his specialities, he developed Kinseikuy (Postural balance with moxibustion).
He had published El calor que cura (Natural Ediciones)(2011), a volume dedicated to the techniques of direct moxibustion (Okyu) and Fukaya’s style. Currently still in the clinical setting, he is also dedicated to spread japanese moxa techniques worldwide.
