Treatment Method



Pulse Diagnosis

Pulse diagnosis, known as "Mak-jin" (脈診) in traditional Korean medicine, is an important diagnostic method that involves palpating the pulse in the wrist to assess the strength, regularity, and rhythm of the pulse, and to determine the type and severity of diseases. 

Originating from traditional Chinese medicine, Korean medicine is based on the concept that the natural environment and the living organisms within the human body interact to regulate and maintain bodily functions. Pulse diagnosis is an important method for diagnosing and treating diseases, based on the interaction of these living organisms.

Pulse diagnosis is a very important diagnostic method in Korean medicine, and is also used as an important diagnostic tool in modern medicine. It provides a lot of information through a simple and non-invasive method, and is very useful in assessing the condition of the body and determining the type and severity of diseases.


Physical Examination 

This examination is the process of evaluating a patient's physical function, muscle strength, joint range of motion, balance, gait, and other factors in order to identify musculoskeletal disorders and develop appropriate treatment plans. This examination involves the use of various testing tools and techniques, taking into account the patient's symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment goals. For example, muscle strength testing can assess the degree of a patient's muscle weakness, and joint range of motion testing can determine whether there are any abnormalities in the joints.


Stress Test

is measuring the biological signals such as heart rate, pulse, etc. to assess the activity level of the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems in a patient.



Acupuncture is one of the traditional Chinese medical treatments that involves using needles to access and treat acupoints in the body. Acupuncture has various effects, including pain relief, inflammation reduction, immune system enhancement, and stress relief, and is a popular and relatively safe treatment method with few side effects. 

Acupuncture typically involves inserting needles into the acupoints to stimulate and improve the flow of energy in the meridians and regulate the function of organs. The depth and angle of insertion and the stimulation method can vary, and appropriate treatment methods are selected based on the patient's symptoms and condition. 

Acupuncture can be performed as a standalone treatment, but it is often applied in conjunction with other treatment methods in traditional Chinese medicine. For example, acupuncture may be combined with herbal medicine or used in conjunction with physical therapy.


Manual therapy, Tuina Therapy 

Manual therapy is one of the physical therapy methods that involves directly manipulating tissues such as muscles, ligaments, and joints by hand. This method is commonly used to improve pain and dysfunction in the musculoskeletal system. Manual therapy utilizes a hands-on approach to enhance bodily functions, reduce pain, alleviate inflammation, and relieve muscle tension. It is also effective in pain management, prevention of sports injuries, and rehabilitation.


Electrical Cupping Therapy 

Electrical Cupping Therapy refers to a method of stimulating muscle tissue using an anatomical cupping technique that involves the application of electrical stimulation. This approach combines traditional cupping techniques with electrical stimulation to aid in pain relief, improve blood circulation, and promote muscle relaxation. The electrical stimulation is delivered through electrodes attached to the bottom of the cupping cups.


Fire Cupping 

"Fire cupping" is a type of cupping therapy used in traditional Korean medicine, in which heated cups are applied to the skin to stimulate the skin and muscle tissues. This can promote blood circulation, relieve muscle tension, and alleviate pain. Fire cupping should be performed under the guidance of a professional and may be limited for use in patients with unstable conditions or certain medical conditions.


Providing Home Exercise Instruction  

Providing home exercise instruction can assist in the adjunct treatment of patients by allowing them to perform the necessary therapeutic exercises at home. This can also help with pain management, correct posture, and preventative care.
