About Su Jok therapy

 
Su Jok Therapy is a brilliant discovery by a Korean scientist called Prof. Park, Jae Woo, who after many years of careful observation and clinical experience developed a new system of therapy using only the hands and feet to affect the same results as body acupuncture. He found a complete correspondence system representing the whole body, on the hands and the feet. In Korean, Su means "Hand," and Jok means "Feet."
 
 The advantage of this system is its simplicity, safety and efficiency. It is easy to learn, and the speed of response is often dramatic. It employs no forbidden or dangerous points, and is therefore suitable for use by paramedics and laypersons for self-treatment.

In addition to serving their normal function as appendages of the four limbs, the hands and feet themselves represent a small mirror image of the human body as a whole. Hands and feet are endowed with a "remote control" function, which can be employed to cure diseases throughout the entire body.  
 
Look carefully at your palms
Hands and feet are part of the body that are subject to mechanical and other kinds of irritation during walking or any other work. Those irritations provide maintenance of health in the organism; due to them we are not sick constantly. Don't we start to rub our hands first when it is cold? Aren't warm feet a basis of a comfort in cold times?
When illness occurs in a specific place of your body, points and zones of high sensitivity appear in the systems of correspondence of hands and feet. If we influence these points there appears an impulse that goes to area of illness and points of pathology in your organism that in turn starts to heal itself.


 

 
Main correspondence system is based on the similarity of hand/foot structure and human body parts. This likeness includes the number, the level of location, the directions, proportions of the protruding parts. There is also very obvious similarity of the thumb to the head
Each finger on a hand and a foot is similar to a whole person’s body. The finger has 3 parts - phalanxes. The body also has three parts without extremities - a head, a chest cell and a belly cavity. These parts are neatly separated from each other on the body and on the finger. It is so-called system of conformity of "insect".
 
 
 
The essence of healing is to find in one of the systems of conformity a zone of conformity to sick organ or a place the most painful points and to influence on them by one of following methods: mechanical massage, a magnetic field, warming up, influence by electricity, colour, seeds or microneedle  
These actions at initial stages of diseases can lead to recovery and allow prevention of the development of acute and chronic illnesses. Giving practical recommendations for treatment, we talk only about influence on the hand because it is easier to treat your organism via hands. Active points on feet are also very effective at treatment
Su Jok Therapy and Onnuri Medicine is based on the principle that the body is represented in the hands and feet. (Correspondence) Hence whatever is in the body has to be found in the hand or the foot—whether it is a body part, organ, meridian or charka, etc. Sometimes treatment is given at the correspondence level. Here we use micro needles (Acupuncture), micro magnets, soft laser, burning of herbs (Moxibustion), massage (Acupressure), seeds etc at the correspondent point.

The next level of treatment is the 5-element principle. The body is made up of the five elements which create certain energies which are in a state of dynamic equilibrium. When any one or more of these energies vary beyond a certain range, disease is created in the body. Treatment consists of re-establishing a harmonious equilibrium thus restoring health. At this level, not only the body and its physical problems can be treated but persons can also be given stability in the emotion and reason levels of functioning.

Methods of influence on the correspondence points:

 Massage

Press the most painful of the points found up to a tolerant pain and by vibrating movement massage it within 1-5 minutes. Thus, it is possible to do it not only with one or several points but also to massage the whole zone of conformity by a proper massage roller or a special massage ring. To influence the points of conformity mechanically you may use many improvised means such as fine stones, metal or other material balls, seed grains, etc. These things are pasted by a sticky plaster on conformity points and are massaged periodically.

 
 Magnet method

It is possible to put magnets on conformity points fixing them by sticky plaster. The magnet should be arranged on the most painful point. The magnet has southern and northern poles. Please check up suitability of polarity to your organism. If your condition becomes worse, change the vector of the magnet to opposite one.
Biological energy of seeds – Seed Therapy

We all know about the force of sprouting seeds when gentle sprout punches through solid ground. Their potential energy is used in therapy. The seeds are pasted by a sticking plaster on a zone conforming to pathological process. The seed influencing on points of conformity is applied in two ways - mechanical (the most effective seeds are those that have sharp sides, for example, seeds of buckwheat) and bio pathological power influence.
Warming up -moxa

Heat has a stimulating influence as extending energy. That's why warming up of points of conformity gives positive effect for number of diseases connected to lack of energy or surplus of a cold. Warming up is performed by special wormwood sticks (moxas) that should be placed directly on skin to warm up the point of conformity. Warming up points of conformity on hands and feet can be accomplished by anything that generates heat.

 
Microneedles - Microacupuncture

Small micro needles can be used on correspondence points on hands and feet. Needles can be used effectively for harmonising the energy using the five elements or SixKi theory to harmonise the deficiency or excess. They can be used on biol Meridians or Chakras on hands and feet. The treatment in this therapy is very safe and there are no side effects.
Colour Therapy

Many diseases especially diseases connected with external manifestations may be healed by colour therapy. If external illness appears only by reddening without swelling and pain, it should be treated by black colour. If illness is shown by swelling, itch, weak passing pains, it should be treated by green or dark blue colours. If illness is manifested by significant but not constant pains and occurrence of erosion, it should be treated with red and yellow colours. If illness is indicated by strong constant pains, or the appearance of ulcers, and the affected area gets a gray-black colour, it should be treated by yellow and red colours. To apply colour therapy it is necessary to paint points of conformity by a marker of definite colour.
Treatment by colour has a good effect to heal skin diseases.
