INTRODUCTION The late Professor Park, Jae Woo, a Korean scientist/- philosopher, developed a system of health restoring protocols part of which he named Su Jok. Korean words for hands and feet. He discovered an array of correspondence and energy systems on the hands and feet, and that through simple methods of stimulation pain quickly diminished and rapid healing was set in motion. This therapy is an evolved method of acupuncture, but with NO needle options.
Comparisons: Su Jok Acu Therapy Relies on immediate feedback from the body e.g. involuntary movement Applied to points on hands and/or feet only, making treatment safe Treats correspondence systems, together with various energy systems Traditional Acupuncture Relies on practitioner’s knowledge Applied anywhere on the body Treats acu points on traditional Chinese meridian system
Professor Park’s Philosophy The human body is viewed as a computer system where energy flow may be adjusted by remote control The hand is the hardware of the computer Su Jok Acu therapy is the software
Therapy Credentials The therapy I am introducing is practiced throughout Russia, Asia and Europe The use of the light pen I will introduce is commonly used in hospital out-patient departments throughout Russia Treatment efficacy is backed up by numerous clinical studies and MRIs
CORRESPONDENCE SYSTEMS: - Hands and feet viewed as blueprints of the body i.e. Similarity & number of protruding parts, number of segments & joints of protrudings parts, position of protruding parts - Used as remote controls to bring about wellbeing
The knee corresponds with middle joint of middle finger on left/right hands & feet. On probing area on finger that relates to e.g. Patella Tendinopathy, acute pain felt in finger indicates exact treatment points
Treatment Protocols: Su Jok Acu Therapy Needling (optional) Moxa NO needle alternatives: Electro device Light pulse stimulation Magnets Massage stimulation Traditional Acupuncture Needling Moxa Herbs
In addition to correspondence treatment (physical) an Energy Flow Therapy is also administered (metaphysical) 6 Ki Light Pulse Stimulation Correspondence Treatment (probing)
ENERGY SYSTEMS - e.g. 6 Ki (6 energies) Wind – Movement Muscles/tendons, joints Heat – Warming Up, Expansion Heart and blood vessels Hotness – Max.Expansion Nervous System Humidity – Gathering Fat & Lymphatics Dryness – Contraction Immune System, Skin Coldness – Max.Contraction Skeletal System
6 Ki Points Professor Park evolved the traditional Chinese meridian system first written about by the Yellow Emperor in the Neiching (circa BC) He discovered a Byol meridian and chakra system located on the hands and feet, on which 6 Ki points can easily be treated to adjust imbalances of energy to bring about well being
Case Report A 28yr old male Goal Keeper Presents Patella Tendinopathy NSAIDs prescribed by local clinic following MRI – patient experienced irritated gut Resumed play prior to attending my clinic Current pain level, states 8-9 (NRS)
Assessment of Case Report A Classified as excessive branch Heat (inflammation) in structure of ‘Yang’ Wind (joints and tendons) OBJECTIVE: Remove excessive heat and swelling from the area of injury through sedation of branch heat (inflammation), tonification of coldness energy and sedation of humidity energy (humidity is responsible for swelling) Rebalanced 6 Ki Cycle
Treatment Plan Identify & treat pain points on correspondence system Utilise light pen to balance excessive 6 Ki Pen Specification – Wavelength = nm – Pulses at: 1 Hz, 5Hz, 20Hz Stimulation of 6 Ki points as per Objective
6 Treatments applied with light device - over 2 week period Session 1 – Pain points above and beneath knee identified on correspondence system. Massaged with probe until pain diminished. – 6 Ki protocol carried out on Yang wind meridian – Client reported, and I observed, swelling reduced by 50%. Pain level down from 8 to 4 (NRS) Sessions 2-4 – Reduced pain (2 NRS), no swelling.
Case Report A Cont’d/… Session 5 – Patient reported pain generally now a niggle, more when squatting (2 NRS) Session 6 – Patient able to bend, rotate leg and squat without pain or discomfort No other therapies or medication administered throughout treatment period
Case Report B Male centre back player Presents torn hamstring to right thigh Bruising on back of thigh, leg stiffness, pain Sustained injury 2 weeks Injury diagnosed through MRI at local clinic Pain level 9-10 (NRS)
Assessment of Case Report B Location of injury (back of thigh) relates to ‘Yang’ Coldness Nature of injury classified as excessive Coldness (injury), Dryness (stiffness, sharp pain), Wind (aggravation in motion)
Objective: Unify separated muscle fibres Sedate pain Increase mobility & flexibility of leg Balanced 6 Ki Cycle
Treatment Plan Identify and treat pain points on correspondence system 6 Ki Light Therapy as per assessment Magnets - Homecare Twist Therapy - Homecare
Case Report B Session 1 – Massaged thigh correspondence area with my thumb, patient found this extremely painful. Explained concept of treatment and continued. – 6 Ki light pen stimulation applied to adjust excessive & deficient energies – Gave patient magnets to apply to correspondence area on hand between treatments Session 2 – Patient reported pain level 6 (NRS) but less following magnet application. – Repeated 6 Ki treatment with light pen Sessions – Rpt 6 Ki. – Gave magnets for homecare – Client reported pain around 4 (NRS) and leg moves more freely.
Case Report B Cont’d/… Session 6,7 – Patient reported: – Greatly reduced stiffness – More flexibility – Introduced Twist Therapy – Homecare: Magnets, Twist exercise Session 8 – Patient pain free, no stiffness, full mobility of leg No other therapy or medication administered. Patient resumed training following the 2 week treatment period (usual recovery period approx. 4-6 weeks)
Conclusion: The methods of treatment carried out, in the two case reports presented, were equally as effective as previous cases where needling was adopted as the primary protocol It is not necessary to insert needles into patients bodies for treatment of sporting injuries
