Korean Su Jok | Traditional Hand and Foot Reflexology

Korean Su Jok therapy (Su-Jok means Hand-Foot) uses reflexology concepts by treating reflex points (energy points or acupoints) on the hands and feet to heal discomforts and illnesses in corresponding body organs and systems.

Although certainly not a new concept or treatment method, but thousands of years already used throughout Asia, this Korean Hand and Foot therapy, developed by Professor Jae Woo Park (1942 – 2010), has gained widespread popularity across the globe.

The reason for its popularity is perhaps that it’s a more exact treatment and more comprehensive than other foot and hand reflexology systems. It’s also known for its method of stimulating points for longer periods than usual.

The energy points (or acupoints) system of Su-Jok is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) acupoints and meridians, although Professor Park’s system includes some additional points not known within TCM.

Su-Jok targets a broad range of common illnesses, including general pains. Moreover, the treatment uses a variety of techniques such as needling, magnet therapy, light and color treatments, massage rings, manual acupressure, mineral and seed therapy, moxibustion, and acupuncture, depending on the need of the receiver.

Su Jok can be given by a therapist, but it’s also a Self-Care or Self-Healing treatment modality.
