Magnetotherapy - Su Jok Method

Where did the method of SuJok Magnetotherapy originate?

The late Professor Park, Jae Woo was a Korean scientist and philosopher. He is the originator of a significant number of Su Jok Ki therapies which include SuJok Magnetotherapy and Su Jok Acupuncture. The medical profession in several countries have adopted Su Jok Ki to run alongside orthodox medicine, and in particular the Russians have carried out extensive testing in their hospitals to prove the effectiveness of this therapy. The results prove, backed up by MRI scanning and numerous clinical trials, that Su Jok Ki therapies are highly effective treatments and clinical studies are openly available on their website.

What is SuJok Magnetotherapy?

Su Jok  -  Korean words that translate to hand and foot. The hands and feet host not only an array of correspondence systems that directly connect with organs, tissues, body systems, limbs etc. but also a number of energy systems that include Byol meridians, Byol chakras and the Diamond Energy System which parallels the structure of the pyramid to the human body.

How is the treatment carried out?

An example: the middle finger, top joint corresponds with the foot.

To treat ankle problems (sprains, oedemas, stiffness, etc.) at correspondence level. If the problem is on the lateral side of the ankle joint, the corresponding area on the finger is beneath the nail. This area is examined with a probe to find acute pain points. The most painful points are marked and small round Byol magnets are applied.

 However, sometimes this method of stimulation is not enough to totally eradicate the problem, particularly in chronic cases, in which case work on an energy system, e.g. meridian, chakra or diamond energy system has to be implemented.

Once the most beneficial treatment method has been established through application diagnosis, the magnets are taped in position and the client is monitored to ensure there is no manifestation of adverse effects.

Are magnets as effective as acupuncture?

Yes,they work in the same way as needles, but are non invasive. They either tonify deficient energy or sedate excessive energy, either of which cause disease and disorder in the body on both physical and emotional levels.

Professor Park established there is not only a meridian system working within the body as discovered by the ancient Chinese, but many other energy circuits which go out of balance causing disturbance to our wellbeing. The Professor's revered words were 'There is never just one way'.

How many treatments will I need?

Acute conditions, meaning the condition has manifested in less than 6 months, respond very quickly and can usually be eliminated in 2 to 3 sessions. Chronic complaints can take longer but relief is usually felt from the first treatment in both instances.

Is Su Jok Ki suitable for children?

YES. Plants and seeds hold a magnetic charge and are gentle enough to be applied to children without any adverse effects.
