ABSTRACT

Objectives :The purpose of this paper is to establish theoretical bases upon which to complement the clinical evidence in representative literature Dongeuibokam (東醫寶鑑) of Korean medicine. Methods :We searched applicable paragraphs about thermotherapy in Dongeuibokam (東醫寶鑑) and defined them as historical and theoretical bases of thermotherapy in Korean medicine. Results :Three paragraphs about thermotherapy are in Yehyung (外形篇) and Jabbyung (雜病篇) of Dongeuibokam (東醫寶鑑). These records to treat the disease of the internal organs and meridian are enough to explain historical and theoretical evidences. Conclusions :Although only three paragraphs are associated with thermotherapy, they mean that thermotherapy has been explained under the system of Korean medicine. It is necessary for more literatural study and clinical trials to be carried out to secure the evidence of physical therapies in Korean medicine.
