Jaseng Hospital of Oriental Medicine Testimonials

From Yoon-Jeong, Choi

I wouldn’t have been cured if I had given up on the treatment.

I had severe back pain since I gave birth to my second child on May 2005. I assumed it was just a side effect of giving birth, so didn’t take seriously at all (In fact wasn’t even able to freely turn over or get up from lying down and I sometimes even had to crawl on my hands and knees) The pain eventually diminished, but then reappeared in October 2004.
I was contemplating on whether I should go with eastern or western treatment, and because of my belief Jaseng’s non-surgical treatment I chose Jaseng Hospital of Oriental Medicine. On my first visit, I was questioning whether I could actually be cured with this treatment. The bill for treatment and medication also laid a heavy burden on me. However, my passion to return to good health weighed more, so I decided to follow the doctor’s orders.
I received Chuna and acupuncture therapy once a week, along with herbal medicine. After 3 months of treatment I felt I might be able to stop treatment because I felt much improvement, however the pain started again, but not as severe as in the beginning. So I received 1 more month of treatment. I wouldn’t have been cured if I had given up on the treatment.
Deciding to take 4 months of herbal medicine and receive treatment was the best choice that I made. I appreciate Dr. Beol Jeong, for helping me to trust and believe that I too can be cured if I follow his exact orders. I feel that my passion to recover and my positive thoughts were very helpful as well. Now I introduce Jaseng Hospital to my colleagues and friends with great confidence. 

From Yoon-sil Han(1968)

I am satisfied with the treatment I received for my chronic neck & low back pain.

I had chronic neck & low back pain, which was caused by my poor posture.Following 2 months of treatment, I’m very satisfied with my improved body & mind condition. One of my relatives introduced me to come to Jaseng, and I think Jaseng Hospital deserves admiration.
I am surprised with the fact that not only the doctors and nurses but also people from the information desk, the cashier, and even the shuttle bus drivers were all very kind and helpful.
Jaseng isn’t the kind of hospital that offers only one-way treatments, and pushes patients out of the hospital because of lack of time. I feel the doctor’s attitude of inducing patients to have conversations and providing a comfortable treatment atmosphere cut my remedy time down.
I will try to do the exercises that Dr. Kim taught me constantly, which is maintaining a correct posture and improving my neck & low back in good condition.I would like to thank Dr. Kim for his great technique and patience.

From Mr Bahk

Unbearable Low back pain : the aftereffect of snowboarding accident

A ski buff Mr Bahk used to run to ski resorts every winter season. 3 Years ago, he had an accident and broke his arm and sprained his low back while snowboarding, but after recovering by having surgery, he completely forgot about what happened to his body and any pain he suffered from.

One day a year later, he began to feel numbness in his low back and his back frequently fell asleep which made it difficult to walk normally or for a certain length of time. Bahk even began to limp in his right leg and when driving, he had to lean his upper body leftward in order not to feel the pain in his right lower body.

"Due to the uncomfortable condition of my body I began to feel exhausted. The pain and numbness became more serious as time passed. I tried many therapeutic methods from medication to physiotherapy but only to fail..."

He was in his worst condition when came to Jaseng. Being diagnosed as having HIVD(herniated discs) between lumbar vertebrae 3-4, 4-5, and 5-sacrum 1, Bahk immediately registered to be hospitalized. In the first week, Bahk lived on the bed lying on his stomach, holding a pillow. He didn't eat much because he was afraid of moving himself towards the bathroom, which caused unbearable pain. The initial treatment was done using MST(Motion style treatment), Jaseng's unique acupuncture technique which is especially good for emergency cases.

"It was just like magic. When receiving MST, I soon began to feel very comfortable in my low back and leg and eventually I was able to walk on my own. The effect lasted for about a day in the initial MST and in the second MST, it went for more than a day. A week after having the second MST, I was able to go to the bathroom freely and I didn't have excruciating pain anymore."

Bahk checked out of the hospital a month later with his health condition being diagnosed to be normal.

The major therapies he received were acupuncture, moxa, blood suction, and physiotherapy. However, besides acupuncture, the most affecting part was Jaseng herbal medication, which helps the ligaments and muscles placed along the bones and discs to become stronger and healthier.

A month after returning to his job, Bahk stated that as long as he didn't do strenuous work or walking, he doesn't feel pain or numbness anymore.

He adds, always try to check yourself to see what posture you are seated or standing in. Keeping a good posture is the first step to your spine health and to stay out of trouble.
