Principles of Migun

Migun utilizes the Oriental medical principles of moxibustion heat therapy and acupressure and simulates or is inspired by some of the methods and principles of acupuncture (without the use of needles) and therapeutic massage and basic chiropractic effect (without the use or application of human hands.) According to Oriental Medicine the human body has 365 acupressure points. The Migun approach is to concentrate on some of the most vital acupuncture points located near the spine.

Acupuncture started in 4,000 BC on the East Coast of China where the inhabitants. using sharp stones applied to points around the body as a means to relieve pain, discovered via trial and error the fundamental theory that the human body is a "miniature universe" with all parts of the body interconnected.

Oriental medical practitioners have mapped the human body with acupuncture points and uncovered that the majority of vital healing points were located near the spine. Those points can now be understood as the pathways for the nervous system. Until recently few people in Western Society had the opportunity to experience this type of treatment because of a lack of understanding of Oriental Medicine. Fortunately, Migun has now opened up the world of Oriental Medicine to bring it to the public in a way that is easy, comfortable and effective.

It is believed that a healthy spine is necessary if one is to lead an enjoyable, healthy, and long life. The spine is the pillar of the human body. It is connected to all internal organs, muscles and nerves. In fact, all brain activities are regulated by the functions of the spine.

The spine is a column of bones called vertebrae. Human beings have 7 cervical, 12 thoracic, 5 lumber, 5 sacral, and 3-5 coccyx vertebrae. The function of the spinal cord depends on the condition of the vertebrae. When mobility of the vertebrae is lost the reflexes become dull. When the spine is distorted the nerves are compressed and the result is that all the organs controlled by those nerves will not perform properly. Chiropractic therapy attempts to correct the distorted vertebrae and normalize the functions of the organs, muscles, tissues, and nerves.

Considering the importance of the spine, it is
apparent that maintaining a healthy spine is the key to a healthy life. An unhealthy and distorted spine may cause one to suffer from disorders such as lumbago, tinnitus, and disc related problems. Maintaining one's posture and keeping the back warm are good ways to care for the spine.

Acupuncture/Acupressure Effect

For the past 3000 years acupuncture has remained the most popular medical practice among Oriental medical practitioners. Migun Thermal Massage is inspired by acupuncture principles but instead of using needles to stimulate the nervous system, Migun uses focused far infrared heat at key acupuncture points on both sides of the spine. Thus, Migun Thermal Acupressure Massage attempts to simulate acupuncture and some of its primary benefits without needle insertion. Migun also simulates acupressure by heated jade probe massage of key acupressure points.

Heat Therapy/Moxibustion Effect

Moxibustion is a treatment that applies heat to particular spots on the body by burning moxa on the skin. Moxa is a dried herb which is derived from the species mugwort. Migun products effectively simulate their treatment with carefully controlled safe and comfortable use of far infrared heat.
