A book is that the ancients in the moxibustion health care also accumulated rich experience. China's health care in the Tang Dynasty began to pay attention to, at that time mainly from the perspective of disease prevention. Such as "Qian Jin Yi Fang" cloud: "all diseases are three in three Zhuang moxibustion." The "waitai miyao" further pointed out: "mortal years more than thirty, if not the popularity of moxibustion at Zusanli point, eyes dark." In fact here have been related to the fitness function of moxibustion. To the Song Dynasty moxibustion health care function has been fully recognized, such as "acupuncture and Moxibustion" mentioned: "Qihai, strength of the sea, the vitality of the spirit does not hurt, although the disease is not harmful, a debilitating disease, no death. Appropriate frequency moxibustion this point, in order to Zhuang Yuanyang, if you have to wait for the disease and moxibustion, fear of losing the evening also." In addition to Qihai, many medical also summed up some other points. Such as the "Bian Que heart book" cloud: "people without disease, often moxibustion Guanyuan, Qihai, Mingmen, zhongwan...... But also more than 100 years." "Zhang Gao said" stressed "to Ann, where to do three". Release for huanongjiu, before not is not dry sore. That repeated moxibustion at Zusanli point, can play a role in health care. "Bian Que heart book" also mentioned some operation method of health moxibustion, such as "thirty to three years, a three hundred navel Zhuang; fifty, two years a navel three hundred strong sixty a year; a three hundred strong under the navel."

"Acupuncture and Moxibustion" also contains: "old people pass old and looks like the boy who, every year to cover a strong fecal navel is."
The meaning of the Song Dynasty is some doctors in Wang Zhizhong's own experience, "acupuncture and Moxibustion" mentioned in "to the old and sick, often bitter shortness of breath, doctors who teach moxibustion Qihai, gas has no promotion, since every one or two years is to be moxibustion." Dou Cai also deep feeling: "excess fifty, often Guanyuan five hundred strong, the service life and life extension of Dan dan. Getting to the light body, envy in diet. Sixty-three, because of worries about anger, suddenly see the dead pulse on the left and nineteen inch, a check is Guanyuan, Mingmen five hundred strong, fifty days after the death of Veins no longer see men. Every year so often moxibustion, then old Kang Jian." (Bian Que heart book).

On the first day,Each foot and twenty-six on the second day of moxibustion moxibustion of Zhuang, seven strong, the third to seventh day on the second day of the method for the same."
In a word, the ancients believed that moxibustion can be used for cold and heat syndromes, but for whatever disease, doctors must explore the disease, careful diagnosis, according to the patient's age and physique, choose appropriate acupoints and moxibustion methods, master the use of reinforcing reducing techniques and proper quantity of moxibustion, moxibustion, moxibustion for this.
