During the event, a high-quality Oriental medicine treatment regime is offered free of charge. The treatment includes acupuncture, free Oriental medicinal products, and teas. As the event is being held in a traditional Korean house, known as a Hanok, visitors also can see other traditional aspects of Korea.
Those who want to get regular and personalized Oriental medical treatments can be connected with an Oriental medical clinic during the event. Several doctors from Oriental medical clinics will guide them so that they can continue those treatments during their stay in Seoul.
Previously, the Association of Korean Oriental Medicine (AKOM) appointed October as the month of Oriental medicine and announced that it will host various events regarding traditional Korean medicine nationwide. It is currently hosting campaigns that offer accurate information and facts about Oriental medicine in Seoul, Daejeon, and Gangwon Province.
On October 9, the Heojun Festival was held supported by AKOM and Gangseo-gu Office which featured free Oriental medicine treatments for citizens. The festival will continue in Gangnam-gu Health Center on October 20, and Guro-gu Health Center on October 21.
