Objective The purpose of this review was to investigate exercise therapy by sasang constitution and to offer information for further research.
Method The literature was investigated from KMBASE, KISS, ScienceON, JSCM, DBpia, Pubmed. The searching term were sasang, sasang constituion, sasang type, taeyangin, taeeumin, soyangin, soeumin, exercise, physical therapy, physical activity, and so on. Studies were extracted and analyzed exercise by sasang constitution, in addition, were also collected physiological differences related to sasang constitution, exercise ability, exercise response and effects, and exercise contraindications.
Result & Conclusion It is helpful for Taeyangin to lower the energy through exercises that train the lower body and deep breathing, and there is no need to exercise excessively. Taeeumin tend to be obese compared to other constitutions. In order to be physically healthy, it is good to sweat a lot through regular exercise. It is good to do aerobic exercise that burns a lot of calories every day. Soyangin has a weak lower body, so it is good to exercise to reinforce the lower body. Soyangin has weak stamina, and since static exercise easily loses interest, it is helpful to do exciting exercise, and it can be performed at normal intensity. Soeumin are statistically less physically active. So soeumin need to improve exercise habits, but because physical strength is on the weak side, it is more appropriate to do an exercise that activates the body parts evenly rather than a strong one.
