Sujok therapy is an alternative healing method that isolates certain points of the human body. “Su” means hand while “Jok” means feet. This holistic treatment was developed in the 1980s by Korean scientist, Professor Park Jae Woo.
In sujok therapy, the hands and feet are the locations of systems of active points. These points correspond to the organs. Treating a specific area of the foot or palm will alleviate a diseased organ. The idea behind the sujok principle is stimulating the points to treat diseases. Practitioners believe that the therapy can cure most – if not all – diseases.
Sujok therapy is 100% safe and simple. It’s extremely easy to do, you don’t really need a specialist to conduct the therapy. All it takes is a couple of hours to master the meridian points. After mastering the technique, you can apply sujok therapy to yourself, your friends or loved ones. Best of all, the therapy can also be customized according to a person’s preferences.
In addition, sujok therapy can be used in conjunction with other alternative remedies – such as acupuncture or aromatherapy. Also, patients don’t have to take precautions at all. Sujok therapy is 100% all-natural. In fact, it’s the safest therapy ever developed.
