Su Jok Therapy was developed by South Korean scientist Professor Park Jae Woo and is based on his original theories as well as principles of traditional Eastern medicine. In Korean, Su Jok literally translates into Hand and Foot (Su means a hand and Jok means a foot). Acupuncture points on the hands and feet correspond to body structure and organ location and constitute a body micro system. Su Jok stimulates these points using magnets and small acupuncture needles to bring rapid and sometimes instant relief pain in almost any part of the body.
On our hands and feet we host correspondence systems. The systems are highly active points connected to every area of the body through correspondence globules, positioned below the surface of the skin. When these globules are stimulated, energy waves are passed to the corresponding organ and to the brain which in turn brings about curative energy waves.
Elizabeth Jelley is a therapist and yoga teacher who runs classes in Syston and Leicestershire. She has trained in SU JOK and uses it along with Reflexology and Reiki.
How does Su Jok treatment work?
First of all Elizabeth’s clients receive a full consultation and full medical history to determine that the correct treatment is administered. Then the treatment consists of working on the corresponding reflex points on the hands and feet by using an acupuncture probe to find the acuh point. Once the points are found then small acupuncture needles are dropped into the areas and left in place for about 15 to 20 minutes. The client relaxes in a chair whilst the needles are in situ and then the needles are removed and disposed of. All the needles used are single use and I do have a no needle machine for those who have a phobia of needles. It is recommended to receive at least three treatments for a positive result.
Who Can Have Su Jok?
The answer is everyone, even children.
This therapy can relieve any pain related problems. It can relieve backpain, joint problems, nausea, infertility, migraine, anxiety, depression.
SU JOK Practitioners work with various methods of stimulation besides mechanical pressure, include:
1. Miniature magnets designed both to give both mechanical and
magnetic force stimulation;
2. Moxibustion which are used to stimulate heat in the needle and
therefore create more stimulation to specific points.
3. Massage rollers to stimulate the hands and feet.
4. Miniature hand needles
Each treatment lasts approximately 30 to 45 minutes.
