Thermal puncture or JI-therapy (Warming up)
Eastern peoples have a legend about a certain point of Zu-san, which is responsible for health and longevity. Once upon a time, a peasant inherited an amazing inheritance from his parents. These were not fabulous treasures and not a beautiful castle. Parents conveyed unusual knowledge to their son; they revealed to their son the secret of the point of Zu-san-li. The secret was that if you correctly act on this point and cauterize in a special way, then you can live a very long life without knowing the disease. This person clearly followed the advice of his parents and took great care of his point of Zu-san-li, so he was able to live a very long life and survived the change of many rulers.
And today, this point is considered miraculous. Therefore, all people who are not indifferent to the state of their health perform cauterization and massage this point. A special method of treatment is cauterization with wormwood cigars, which affect bioactive points in the body. Usually this treatment method is used as an adjunct to acupuncture procedures.
Treatment by cauterization by cigars is also called heat puncture. This procedure is carried out without direct contact with the skin, and the cigar is brought to a distance of 1-3 cm from its surface. For the manufacture of cigars, medicinal plants are used, which when ignited continuously smolder and emit soft pleasant warmth, which has a reflexotherapeutic effect on the skin. The duration of such a procedure usually does not exceed 30 minutes.
Wormwood cigars (wicks or bundles) are suitable for treatment using this technique. First they are set on fire, then they are brought to the desired area on the human body. The heat generated by a smoldering cigar affects certain points on the body. This method is very simple, but at the same time quite effective, which is very often used in Chinese medicine now.
Oriental doctors use various techniques for such thermal effects. The distant thermopuncture procedure is carried out using wormwood cigars. After ignition, the tip of the cigar smolders, infrared radiation is released from it, which affects the points of the body. During the procedure, the skin temperature in these areas can rise to 43-45 ° C, but after its completion, there are no burn marks on the skin. Distant exposure can be carried out by ironing, pecking or thermal methods.
Ironing Chiu is a method in which the end of a smoldering wormwood cigar is continuously moved horizontally back and forth. During the procedure, a person can feel pleasant heat on a heated area of the body. The procedure lasts about 10-15 minutes until a slight reddening of the skin appears. The ironing method allows you to fight many diseases of the skin, including neurodermatitis and eczema.
Stitching Chiu is a method of distant exposure, in which the smoldering end of a wormwood cigar is first brought closer, and then removed from a part of the human body. This method allows you to work sequentially with several points, the exposure time for each of them is about 2-3 minutes. Stitching treatment is used for flaccid paralysis and for the treatment of other diseases of the internal organs.
Thermal Chiu is a method of exposure in which patients can feel a constant thermal effect on individual parts of the body. The heating time of each point is about 15-20 minutes or a little longer until a slight reddening or a feeling of good warming appears. This treatment method is recommended for various pain syndromes, as well as increased muscle tone or cramping. Wormwood cigars are able to get to anywhere in the body and warm it. One eastern belief suggests that dry wormwood 3 years ago can cure 7-year-old diseases. This method of treatment has been effectively used for many centuries.
