The women's club "Over 30" will devote this article to such an urgent issue as medical tourism in Korea. Oriental medicine has long won the respect of Europeans and does not need proof of its effectiveness. At the same time, modern clinics in Asia are, as a rule, a combination of the achievements of classical medicine, the experience of oriental healers and high computer technologies. All these factors, combined with the high level of education of Korean doctors, are now highly trusted by patients from overseas, who have recently preferred treatment in Korea.
Citizens of the Russian Federation are also increasingly sent to Korea for medical help, tours to this country among residents of the Far East are especially popular, since a trip to Korea from cities such as Khabarovsk, Vladivostok, Ussuriysk, Nakhodka will literally take few hours.
Perhaps, in more detail it is necessary to dwell on the features and benefits of medical and cosmetic tourism in Korea.
It is clear that the best specialists of the country are concentrated in the capital, so most often foreigners buy tours to visit clinics and hospitals in Seoul.
The Koreans call the Seoul University Hospital the best national medical institution in the country. More than 72 thousand of the most complex operations are carried out here every year. Modern, high-tech equipment allows for detailed examination and accurate diagnosis of diseases. And as you know, the main key to the success of treatment is the correct diagnosis.
Skillful surgeons at Seoul University Hospital are proficient in how to perform surgeries with sophisticated instruments such as a gamma scalpel and a robotic surgeon with arms that can rotate 360 ⁰, allowing thyroid surgery or surgery for cancer is carried out with minimal trauma.
Therefore, such large Russian travel companies as MedbusinessTravel, Astravel, Spectrum are actively involved in organizing medical tourism to the capital of Korea.

The National Tourism Organization of Korea talks about the treatment of traditional Korean medicine, such as popular treatments such as acupuncture and moxibustion.
What is "Chim"?
"Chim" are the so-called needles, which are used during the procedure. In Korean traditional medicine, it is believed that the cause of a person's illness is an imbalance in the vital energy "ki". And with the help of acupuncture (bloodletting and stimulation of acupuncture points on the human body), the flow of this vital energy is increased. Thus, the body gains strength and is able to overcome the disease.
What is Ttym?
Another technique that is actively used in Korean traditional medicine is moxibustion. Treatment is carried out using hot wormwood, which is placed over the diseased area on the patient's body, on a special stand, so that the skin does not burn. Moxibustion is often performed in parallel with acupuncture, as this procedure maximizes the effect of the needles, that is, stimulates blood circulation.
