Korean Hand Therapy is practised in many eastern and oriental countries; it has gained
much popularity over the last 20 years. In Korean Hand Therapy the human body is mapped out on the hands, similar in concept
to the reflexology map of the foot. The various functions of the body can be manipulated by stimulating specific points on
our hands, so that we can help to resolve pain and ailments and balance our body's energy systems. There are 14 micro-meridians
and 345 acupressure points in our hands which regulate the internal organs of the body.
Hands contain many thousand
sensory nerve endings which makes them one of the most sensitive areas of the body. The early Chinese developed the technique
of acupressure thousands of years ago. This provided the basis for reflex zones and the relative points and connections between
different parts of the body. It is well documented that the early Chinese, Japanese, Indians and Egyptians worked on the hands
and feet to promote good health and many of the long-established principles developed then are now available to be used in
the modern practice.
This wonderful massage technique is beneficial to our modern life with many of us now suffering
form the dreaded RSI (Repetitive Strain Injury) or Carpel Tunnel, our hands and arms work continuously; the many repetitive
movements we perform each day can put strain, wear and tear on the tendons, ligaments and muscles, by using this technique
we help to reduce muscle fatigue, relieve everyday aches and pains and encourage joint mobility.
