How to use Master Lee's Hot-Hot Stick

Hot-Hot Stick is the technique of modified Moxibustion.  It is a technique used to indirectly heat the acupuncture points on the body to tonify body energy.  Hot-Hot Stick is performed using a "moxa stick" -- made up of tightly-packed herbs.


  • Use the sticks according to Master Lee’s instructions.
  • Do not touch the skin with lighted sticks.
  • Do not use if you have a fever, infection or swollen part of the body.
  • Do not use if you have diabetes, high blood pressure, tumors or cancer.
  • Keep out of reach of children.
  • Do not burn your skin.
  • Do not use on blister(s), blood vessels, face, or moles.
  • Use the sticks in well ventilated areas (either a bathroom with a vent or outdoors).
  • Use the sticks before 3PM (if possible).
  • Use the sticks once a day.
  • Be sure to extinguish the sticks after use.
  • External use only.
  • If you accidentally burn yourself, use proper first aid (first aid cream or see your physician).
  • If you see no improvement in 3 weeks, please make an appointment to see your licensed provider.

Tools Needed:

  • Candle, Lighter or Gas/Electrical Range
  • Ashtray, Plate or Aluminum Foil to catch the ashes
  • Aluminum Foil (or water) to put out the fire from the Hot-Hot stick

How to use the Hot-Hot Stick:

  1. Prepare two tinfoil ash trays, one for dry ash and one with water (or have a cup of water on hand).  Light the Hot-Hot Stick on the range, stove or candle (tap off excess ash to avoid falling pieces burning the skin).  Determine the appropriate energy-points.

  2. Make a "V" with your index and middle finger around the energy-point to help guide you.  Wave the burning head of the moxa stick close to the skin, without touching the skin, to heat the energy point.

  3. Be sure to communicate with the recipient (if having someone else provide the procedure).  Recipient should say "warm", "hot" and then "hot, hot" when the Hot-Hot Stick has heated the energy-point to the point of tolerance (should feel like a needle or stinging sensation).  Once it reaches the point of "hot, hot", pull away the moxa stick and press the energy-point with your finger for a second or two.  Then heat again, following the same procedure.

  4. Repeat heating a couple of times over each energy-point or by Master Lee's personal instructions.  Once treatment is complete, extinguish Hot-Hot Stick in water or cap with tinfoil.  Wrap tip of Hot-Hot Stick in foil to be sure the fire is out.  Save for next use.

What to expect AFTER using the Hot-Hot Stick:

  • The local area of the skin will be slightly red.

  • You should not feel pain at all after your application.

  • You should feel relief from your complaints within 5 to 7 days.

How long can you use the sticks?

At the beginning of the application, use the sticks once a day for 2 weeks, and then reduce to 2 times a week for 2 weeks. When your complaints are stable, you may use it once a week for maintenance.
