Medicated Thread Moxibustion
A branch of moxibustion, the therapy originated in the reign of Emperor Chia-ch’ing (Jiaqing) in the Qing Dynasty (960-1279) and was created by Li Jisheng. Nonetheless, its formula was not stable until it evolved with 5th-generation heir Li Jiantian. It since then has been passed down through word of mouth among inheritors involving 43 ingredients and ways of making the medicated thread, exclusive methods and acu-points, and a pithy formula to go with it.
After unrelenting hard work for 12 generations, the therapy is considered to have great merit as traditional Chinese medication with assured curative effect and environmentally friendly properties.
