  • Objectives : The purpose of this literature is to establish theoretical bases of using thermotherapy of cutaneous and muscle meridian(hot poultice). Methods : We reviewed literatures and books about thermotherapy in Traditional Korean medicine. Results and conclusions : Thermotherapy of cutaneous and muscle meridian(hot poultice) has developed from Yu-fa(熨法), a kind of poultice(also called cataplasm). Using it practically in the clinic, we simultaneously analyzed the distributions of cutaneous meridian(經法) and muscle meridian(經筋) and observed the symptoms of a disease to select treatment region. It has characteristic and originality differentiated form western physical therapy because it makes the function of whole body as well as an affected part better.

  • As the technique to remove Paraloid B-72, which is known as an irreversible material, the method using organic solvent and heating, though the ways vary depending on the kind of material to be removed, has been usually used, but it has yet to apply to mud mural because of the technical limit in processing and the potential risk of damage and, moreover, the removal efficiency which also remains unproven. Thus, in a bid to seek the way to safely remove Paraloid B-72 contained in mural, the test was conducted in a way of applying a compress method, which is deemed most efficient. The solvents which are proven to be Paraloid B-72 were applied to the absorbents such as active carbon fiber and methyl cellulose and then were eluted to the surface of mud mural sample which was prepared in the same size and condition for a certain time before evaluating the stability and removal efficiency. Such test was intended to identify the applicability to the mural of Mireukjeon Hall at Geunsansa Temple, which had been treated with Paraloid B-72 for preservation in the past. As a result, the way of mixing the absorbent such as active carbon fiber and Xylene alone or with other quick vaporable solvents proved to be most efficient in removing Paraloid B-72 from mud mural and particularly Acetone:Xylene(1:1wt%) was found to be the most stable among others. Such a test outcome is expected to be a useful data for removing Paraloid B-72 from the mural of Mireukjeon Hall at Geunsansa Temple as well as for restoring other mural cultural assets in the coming days.
