An alternative therapy, Su-Jok Therapy, claims to be able to prevent certain diseases by using a patients hands in order to diagnose and treat them.
Su-Jok therapy is a method of curing diseases by stimulation of the hands using acupuncture, finger pressure and Ayurvedic medicine.
The modern era was built by a different approach to health and to human’s body. So, we are not able to notice early signs of a certain disease anymore.
The only thing we can do is go to the doctor and wait for the results, i.e. diagnosis. However, Ayurvedic medicine nurtured a holistic approach to health and body since ancient times.
According to it, our body is a complete system that has different methods to warn us that something is wrong. Different kinds of diseases, especially severe diseases occur when we ignore all previous warnings.
Each of us has a natural ability to listen to their body and come to some conclusions. For example, we can notice the smell of sweat, urine, faeces and gases we release and we can conclude that our body is overloaded with toxins.
Every human being is able to sense and feel these natural things.
There are alternative methods of diagnosis and treatment that do not require much knowledge in order for us to start with the application. Su Jok (Su Jok – Korean: fist, foot) acupressure is such an example.
Similar to traditional Chinese acupuncture or Ayurvedic medicine, this method is based on learning about energy’s meridians, which are associated with our bodies.
Below is a video of somebody being treated with this therapy. The patient is having her scapular and trapezius pains removed by sujok therapy.
