SuJok, Korean technique

SuJok, Korean technique

The Su Jok technique was developed by Professor Park Jae Woo. “Su jok” means hands (“su”) and feet (“jok”) in Korean.

Park Jae Woo was born on March 11, 1942 in South Korea. Graduated from the National University of Seoul, in the following years, and until his death in the city of Moscow in 2010, he worked in numerous national and international centers as a trainer and developing foundations for the dissemination of his ideas. He was involved in numerous researches in the field of microneedling and his work has been published in more than 400 articles and over 250 books on acupuncture and alternative medicine. Among the best known we can mention: SuJok Therapy, The Basics of SuJok, Sujok for everyone, Guide to SuJok therapy, among others.

Park dreamed of a world free of pain and a society where the smile was considered a channel towards the achievement of harmony and perfection: Living with a smile. The “smile meditation” would allow the individual, not only to improve his health, but also to positively influence the present and future of his close ones and, therefore, in society in general.

What does this therapy consist of?

In general, practitioners of Su Jok therapy believe that by applying pressure to certain areas of a patient’s hand or foot, an ailment elsewhere in the body can be treated or prevented. For example, according to Su Jok’s therapy diagrams, if a practitioner put pressure on the base of a patient’s hand, he would treat ailments related to the spleen. In another example, if a professional put pressure on the tip of a patient’s thumb, stress would be reduced; according to practice, this would work even if a patient used their own fingers to apply pressure. The finger press technique works mainly because the tip of the thumb is linked to brain diseases, and many practitioners believe that stress originates in the brain.


How does the Su Jok technique work?

People who practice Su Jok therapy say that it is easier to learn than other forms of holistic treatment, such as acupuncture. Typically, a professional will start by applying constant pressure to their patient’s hands and feet. As she does this, she will continually observe the patient. When she reaches a specific area on a hand or foot where her patient shows tenderness or pain, she will have found the source of the patient’s illness. For example, if the patient grimaces or flinches when the practitioner puts pressure on a specific area of ​​the patient’s hand, she can check that area against the corresponding map to see which organ is affected by the disease.

This Su Jok therapy is not only a healing method, it is also a way of knowing the basic vital laws that relate classical Western science and the knowledge accumulated since ancient times by Eastern medicine. Its simplicity and its high degree of resolution make this therapy a method destined to spread widely.
