Even when the disease is at its first stage and we don’t suspect this, in the correspondence zones of the diseased organ pain points appear. If at this stage we stimulate them, we can block the disease’s progress. In this case a less intensive and not so long stimulation is needed than for a disease discovered at a later stage. Such a stimulation, which can stop the disease in the very beginning of its progress, is the general massage of the correspondence systems on the hands and feet, with specially developed for the su jok therapy massagers.
The su jok massagers are made to massage intensively the skin and the tissues under it in number of various small point areas. For prophylaxis and to keep fit it is necessary the massage with these tools to be made every day or every second day. The regular use of su jok massagers stimulates all pain points in all correspondence zones, even when they appear, and attack the diseases right from their start. The massage has a tonic and stabilizing effect on the entire organism.
By treatment of more serious diseases the use of su jok massagers can’t replace the methods of stimulation, which we described so far, but it could be used as an additional method. Furthermore it can be used in addition to any kind of medication – drug, herbal etc., speeding up the process.
We must notice that sometimes through general massage with su jok massagers amazing results are achieved with obstinate chronic diseases.
MASSAGE WITH FINGERS
The correspondence zones respond to the disease not only with the appearing of pain points but also with a change in the state of the tissue, which forms them.
If you run your fingers along your hands and feet, you can find tense muscles, hard or sensitive areas. Very useful is their strong, intensive massage with fingers till a complete warming up and relaxing of the tissues is achieved.
Usually the massage is made with a thumb or forefinger, with a violent pressure and slow rotary movements. You could make the massage more effective, if you dub your skin with some oil or cream in advance. The massage has a prophylactic, strengthening and healing effect.
GENERAL MASSAGE WITH MASSAGERS
The most widespread massagers, which are used for general massage of the correspondence systems, are:
- A massage ring.
- A massage spiral.
- A massage cylinder.
The massage with these tools is made 1-2 times a day until the massaged areas redden and you feel warmth there.
A MASSAGE RING
The massage ring is made in a special way from twisted flexible steel wires. It is mainly used for a finger massage. In view of the fact that the entire body is projected on the fingers, their massage has a clear strengthening effect.
The massage is done through very fast and intensive rolling of the ring, back and forth, along the length of the massaged finger.
By rolling the ring on the finger, the pain areas and points in the correspondence zones of a diseased organ can be easily felt. In this case an intensive massage is possible only of the above-mentioned areas and the thumb of the hand, directing the ring, should press the ring harder exactly on this place. This applies to the massage with a massage spiral and cylinder too.
A MASSAGE SPIRAL
The massage spiral and massage ring are made in the same way. The spiral is used for general massage of the hands. It aims a high quality massage of the entire hands. The massage is done through intensive and fast rolling over of the spiral between the palms or between a palm and the upper side of the other hand.
A MASSAGE CYLINDER
The massage cylinder is made of metal or plastics. It is aimed for massage of the hands and feet. Its stimulation is very strong. It is rolled over fast and intensively between the palms, between a palm and the upper side of the hand, between a palm and the upper part of the foot, also it is rolled only with the foot.
The massage cylinder is advisable for people with a coarse skin, who need more effective massage than this made with the massage rings and spirals.
If necessary, with the cylinder not only the hands and feet can be efficiently massaged but also other body areas.
MAGNETIC STARS MASSAGE
Except for seeds various artificial stimulators are used in the su jok therapy. Most widespread are the magnetic stars. They are with a diameter of about 6 mm and are made of ferromagnetic alloy. Their relief lower part is star-shaped. They are placed on the pain points and fixed with an adhesive tape, like the seeds.
The magnetic stars stimulation is a kind of massage method for stimulation, but the massage is also combined with the stimulation of the magnetic field, which tangibly increases the healing effect.
Two kinds of magnetic stars are manufactured. The first are with a north pole from the relief side (with a blue or white cap). The other ones are with a south pole from the relief side (red or yellow cap).
There are different ways for using the magnetic stars. Here you’ll get acquainted with three of them.
► To place one magnetic star on a main pain point.
► To place two magnetic stars on a projection of an affected area.
► To place three magnetic stars on one main and two mirrored points.
STIMULATION WITH ONE MAGNETIC STAR
One magnetic star is placed on the main pain point, when there is a small, localized focus of the disease.
STIMULATION WITH TWO MAGNETIC STARS
Two magnetic stars are used with larger affected areas. On two pain points, in two opposite ends of the projection of the affected area, two magnetic stars with a different polarity are placed.
STIMULATION WITH THREE MAGNETIC STARS
Three magnetic stars are mainly used on the fin¬gers. One magnetic star is placed on a main su jok point and two, with the same polarity, on two mirrored points – vertical and horizontal.
When one or three stars are used, there is a relative approach to their polarity selection:
► If the disease is characterized by excess of ener¬gy – inflammatory, hyperfunction (too great activity), magnetic stars with a south pole (red or yellow cap) are placed on the skin. Placed this way, they suppress, damp down.
► When the disease is characterized by lack of energy – atrophic, hypo function (insufficient energy), spasm, magnetic stars with a north pole (blue or white cap) are placed on the skin. Placed this way, they tone, warm up.
Often it is very difficult to define the nature of the disease – if it is characterized by excess or lack of energy. That’s why in practice is adopted the so called application method for polarity selection of the magnetic stars is adopted. Initially magnetic stars are placed with a south pole to the skin (red or yellow). After a few minutes (sometimes several hours) you feel that your state of health changes. If you feel that the symptoms worsen (for example worse cough by affected lung, more violent pain) the reason is that the polarity changes.
When two magnetic stars with a different polarity are used in the both ends of an affected area, there is no rule for their selection (from which side the south and from which side the north pole). Here the application method is used. The stars are placed by your wish. Their polarity changes, when the condition gets worse..
The magnetic stars are placed for several hours a day (for 24 hours is possible too). On each three-four hours the su jok points should be massaged with them for 1-2 minutes. The next day the stars are moved to another correspondence zone of the diseased organ.
Attention! You must be very careful when using magnetic stars (and magnets), if you are sensitive to magnetic field. If the polarity change leads to discomfort you’d better use seeds.
An effective method for stimulation of the pain su jok points and areas is the magnet stimulation. In contrast to the magnetic stars here we don’t use massage. The relief magnets stimulate only with their magnetic field.
The magnets create an energy flow in the correspon-dence zone of the diseased organ, which rectifies, normalizes its energy state.
The vector of the magnetic field is directed from the north to the south pole. Through selection of its direction against the pain su jok point or area the diseased organs and tissues can be relaxed or stimulated, cooled or warmed up.
Three kinds of magnets are used:
► Point magnets.
► Ring-shaped magnets.
► Magnetic pointers.
The three kinds of magnets are characterized by mark¬ing as it is by the magnetic stars. Blue and white colour of the cap means that the north pole is below (warms, tones), red and yellow – the south pole is below (cools, sedates). A non-standard colouring of the magnets is also possible. In this case a manufacturer manual concerning the polarity is needed.
The point magnets are round-shaped, with a diameter of about 6 millimetres. Usually they are white on the one side, and yellow – on the other. They are used in the same way as the magnetic stars. A regular massage is not done with them because here the stimulation comes only from the magnetic field.
The ring-shaped magnets consist of two magnets, a point magnet in the middle and a magnetic ring – around it.
The ring-shaped magnets are fixed with an adhesive tape on a pain points or area. They are placed for several hours (at the most 24), after that they are moved on pain points in other correspondence zone of the diseased organ.
The ring-shaped magnets, placed with a yellow point magnet and a white ring above, suppress, calm down, cool (inflammation, high temperature, excess).
The ring-shaped magnets, placed with a white point magnet and a yellow ring above, tone, stimulate, warm up (paresis, bad irrigation, insufficiency).
The polarity selection is done depending on the disease’s nature. The application method is used when the disease is hard to be diagnosed, to be defined.
Ring-shaped magnets with several magnetic rings with alternating polarity are also manufactured. Depending on the correspondence zone’s size of the affected area the rings can be added and removed and so the size of the stimulated area to be regulated.
The magnetic pointers look like elongated rectangles. In the first end of the magnetic pointer is the north pole and in the other – the south. Thus the vector of the magnetic field is directed along the length of the magnetic pointer, from the white to the yellow end of the pointer.
The magnetic pointers create a pointed energy flow in the correspondence zones. For example by chronic constipation a magnetic pointer can be placed in the correspondence zone of the large intestine in such a way that the direction of the magnetic vector to coincide with the direction of the food. With diarrhea the direction of the magnetic vector must be against the direction of the food.
Magnetic pointers can be used instead of two point magnets in the both ends of the affected area. They can be arranged one after another and so to make the stimulation line longer.
The magnetic pointers are fixed with an adhesive tape for several hours (at the most 24), after that they are moved on pain points in other correspondence zone. The selection of the vector’s direction of the magnetic field is usually done with the help of the application method.
