- Q: What is Su Jok Ayurvedic Acupressure?
A: Su Jok is a Korean form of acupressure combined with reflexology that uses our hands and feet as correspondence systems. These systems are highly active points connected to every area of the body. When stimulated, energy waves are passed to the corresponding organ and to the brain to provide fast relief of many types of pain and management of the symptoms of certain illnesses.
I use several holistic therapies in my Su Jok practice that provide relief of a variety of health concerns, illnesses and chronic pain conditions, as well as give an overall sense of well-being. Some are used alone, some in conjunction with others. Each are matched to your specific needs after evaluation of your particular situation. They include Reflexology, Magnet Therapy, Seed Therapy and Color Therapy.
- Q: What ailments can Su Jok Therapy help with?
A: Su Jok Ayurvedic Acupressure is highly effective in the relief of many types of pain, and illnesses accompanied by pain, due to blocked energy flow in the affected areas. Su Jok, and Su Jok tools, can help you with ailments such as:

- Q: How long will the relief last?
A: Treatment effectiveness will vary depending on the individual person and the particular health issue. Better and longer-lasting results are generally achieved if you follow the course of treatment with the appropriate number of sessions. Adherence to advice on appropriate life style changes needed – exercise, yoga, meditation, dietary considerations, etc. – will also enhance the extent of your well-being.

A: In Su Jok Ayurvedic Acupunture materials such as Micro Magnets (like Star Magnets, Byol Meridian Magnets (N&S), Bar Magnets, Chakra Magnets), Micro & Mini Moxa, Rollers, Ring Massagers, seeds and other natural materials are used.
- Q: What is the difference between Sujok and Chinese Acupress
A: Both are based on the principles of the eastern philosophies of Yin Yang and 5 Elements. However, Chinese Acupuncture requires the use of needles whereas in Su Jok energy pathways are unblocked through manipulation of pressure points. Additionally, while Chinese Acupuncture uses the whole body in its treatment of pain and illnesses, Su Jok Ayurvedic Acupuncture is done only using the hands and feet.
- Q: How long does it take to feel results?
A: Effectiveness can be seen from the moment treatment is started irrespective of the duration of illness. After your consultation with the therapist, she will decide the sittings required and at what time intervals depending on your situation. What Neelam Sethi also does is, preparing a protocol for you to do by yourself. Acute illnesses take lesser time as compared to chronic ones.
- Q: Can I do Su Jok simultaneously with other treatments?
A: Yes, Su Jok Ayurvedic Acupressure can be done along with other holistic therapies, as well as medical treatments, as there are no contraindications or side effects.
- Q: Are there any side effects?
A: No, Su Jok Ayurvedic Acupressure is 100% safe. Unlike the traditional allopathic system of medicine, which relies on costly prescription drugs…that often are ineffective or have serious side effects…Su Jok is a safe, holistic, alternative therapy that provides relief through pressure applied to correspondent areas on the hands and feet.
