Felip R. Piñana Caudet was born in Tarragona (Spain) (1976). From childhood he was interested in the therapeutic possibilities of everything around him and was attracted by all that nature gave to heal. He trained in Traditional Chinese Acupuncture and Naturopathy in CENAC (Barcelona) (1999). 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 out of Japan)(www.okyugakkobarcelona.com)

He has published El calor que cura (Natural Ediciones)(2011), a volume dedicated to the techniques of direct moxibustion (Okyu) and Fukaya’s style. Translated to French as Une introduction à la moxibustion japonaise (Springer). Currently still in the clinical setting and he is also dedicated to the dissemination of Japanese moxa techniques local and internationally.
