In shiatsu techniques relaxation , treatment is given to the selected points in the palms which are in connection with the different parts of the body.
Acupressure means applying pressure to an Acu point representing the area of treatment in question. Sujok is a word derived from Korean word: Su means hand, Jok means feet (Shi—Finger; Atsu—Pressure).
A mild pressure or massage or a rotation using Jimmi, which is a small tool, for duration of 2—5 minutes in a clockwise and anticlockwise direction.
The shiatsu techniques relaxation principle is palms and soles of feet act as “remote controls” to the whole body. Each point is called “SUJOK POINT”.Moxibustion, seed therapy, laser application, and tiny magnets also may be employed.
