A Chefuko thermal therapy session was organised at Ghattekulo-based Community Police and Community Centre in the Capital on Sunday for earthquake victims to deal with psychological and physical problems.
The Japanese therapy is based on controlling body heat and practitioners say it rids people of exhaustion, fear and abnormal blood pressure. By using infrared technology, the therapy helps in keeping blood vessels healthy, balancing blood flow and relieving muscle and joint pain. The therapy session was jointly provided by CPCSC and Happy Earth Nepal. Inaugurating the programme, SSP Suresh Bikram Shah of Metropolitan Police Commissioner’s Office said the therapy is particularly helpful in creating positive vibes in people.
The service has been launched as aftershocks continue to be felt in Kathmandu and people are living in fright, general secretary of CPCSC Lamxi Prasad Prasain said.
About 100 people benefited from the therapy. Educational and sports materials were also distributed to children. The next therapy session is scheduled to be held at the same venue on August 18.
