Overview About Jaseng Greetings from the Founder

Medical History

Jaseng MSAT, a non-traditional acupuncture treatment, as introduced by a Korean oriental doctor named Joon-shik Shin in 1990. The technique produced the desired results in musculoskeletal pain treatment, especially for those with severely limited mobility due to severe pain.

Jaseng MSAT had a more dramatic effect on pain relief and facilitated mobility. This treatment is practiced regularly at specialized hospitals designated by the Korean Ministry of Health. The effectiveness and reliability of this technique have been clinically proven. When the spine, ligaments, muscles or the cartilage surrounding the joints are damaged inflammation is caused and severe pain occurs making it difficult for a patient to move. If these conditions are neglected, the spine, joint muscles, and ligaments become hardened, and blood does not circulate properly, which aggravates the pain.

Comparison to Traditional Acupuncture

Jaseng MSAT is similar to traditional acupuncture in that it places needles in specific meridian acupuncture points and uses manual stimulation of the needles. But whereas traditional acupuncture encourages the patient to stay still and relaxed after inserting the needles, Jaseng MSAT differs in that it keeps the patient engaged in active or passive action of related body parts for a certain amount of time during acupuncture. The acupuncture points or area of mobilization used in Jaseng MSAT vary depending on the symptoms or area of pain, i.e., low back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, knee pain, temporomandibular pain, etc. The specifics of the type of Jaseng MSAT used in acute back pain-also known as H-MSAT (Help-Motion Style Treatment) because the patient is 'helped' by assistants- as illustrated above.


Jaseng MSAT covers a wide range of applications, from first-aid treatment for patients suffering from intense pain of acute musculoskeletal origin to various spinal and joint sprains, temporomandibular joint syndrome, frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis), gonarthritis, and intervertebral disc herniation.
