Fact: In Korean language, ‘Su’ means hand and ‘Jok’ foot hence Su Jok treatment is given only on hands and feet.

By Korean Prof. Lark Jae Woo in 1980s

Energy Healing


Su Jok Therapy is a brilliant discovery by a Korean scientist called Prof. Park, Jae Woo, who after many years of careful observation and clinical experience developed a new system of therapy using only the hands and feet to affect the same results as body acupuncture. He found a complete correspondence system representing the whole body, on the hands and the feet. In Korean, Su means "Hand," and Jok means "Feet."

The advantage of this system is its simplicity, safety and efficiency. It is easy to learn, and the speed of response is often dramatic. It employs no forbidden or dangerous points, and is therefore suitable for use by paramedics and laypersons for self-treatment.

In addition to serving their normal function as appendages of the four limbs, the hands and feet themselves represent a small mirror image of the human body as a whole. Hands and feet are endowed with a "remote control" function, which can be employed to cure diseases throughout the entire body. 

Su Jok Therapy and Onnuri Medicine is based on the principle that the body is represented in the hands and feet. (Correspondence) Hence whatever is in the body has to be found in the hand or the foot—whether it is a body part, organ, meridian or charka, etc. Sometimes treatment is given at the correspondence level. Here we use micro needles (Acupuncture), micro magnets, soft laser, burning of herbs (Moxibustion), massage (Acupressure), seeds etc at the correspondent point.


Magnet method

It is possible to put magnets on conformity points fixing them by sticky plaster. The magnet should be arranged on the most painful point. The magnet has southern and northern poles. Please check up suitability of polarity to your organism. If your condition becomes worse, change the vector of the magnet to opposite one.
Biological energy of seeds – Seed Therapy

We all know about the force of sprouting seeds when gentle sprout punches through solid ground. Their potential energy is used in therapy. The seeds are pasted by a sticking plaster on a zone conforming to pathological process. The seed influencing on points of conformity is applied in two ways - mechanical (the most effective seeds are those that have sharp sides, for example, seeds of buckwheat) and bio pathological power influence.

Warming up -moxa

Heat has a stimulating influence as extending energy. That's why warming up of points of conformity gives positive effect for number of diseases connected to lack of energy or surplus of a cold. Warming up is performed by special wormwood sticks (moxas) that should be placed directly on skin to warm up the point of conformity. Warming up points of conformity on hands and feet can be accomplished by anything that generates heat.
Microneedles - Microacupuncture

Small micro needles can be used on correspondence points on hands and feet. Needles can be used effectively for harmonising the energy using the five elements or SixKi theory to harmonise the deficiency or excess. They can be used on biol Meridians or Chakras on hands and feet. The treatment in this therapy is very safe and there are no side effects.

Colour Therapy

Many diseases especially diseases connected with external manifestations may be healed by colour therapy. If external illness appears only by reddening without swelling and pain, it should be treated by black colour. If illness is shown by swelling, itch, weak passing pains, it should be treated by green or dark blue colours. If illness is manifested by significant but not constant pains and occurrence of erosion, it should be treated with red and yellow colours. If illness is indicated by strong constant pains, or the appearance of ulcers, and the affected area gets a gray-black colour, it should be treated by yellow and red colours. To apply colour therapy it is necessary to paint points of conformity by a marker of definite colour. Treatment by colour has a good effect to heal skin diseases.
