Korean Hand Therapy
KHT is a complete energy medicine system in your hands. It combines the simplicity of reﬂexology with the sophistication of over 3000 years of Oriental medicine.
It is quite simply a system for restoring the body to health and wellness through your hands. By stimulating speciﬁc points on the hands, the object is to resolve pain and to balance internal organ function.
If you are in pain or have a problem somewhere in your body, the reactions are reﬂected in your hands in the form of tender points. By stimulating the tender points in the correct manner it will positively encourage pain relief.
Each part of the ﬁngers and hand relate to the limbs, structures and organs of the body. The top of the hand represents the back of the body and the spine and the palm represents the front of your body and your organs, whilst the ﬁngers and thumbs represent your limbs.
The KHT reﬂex map of the hand was discovered in 1971 by Dr.Tae-Woo Yoo, OMD, PhD in Korea and has been extensively clinically and experimentally tested for accuracy.
Treatment is carried out in a number of ways: either by speciﬁc pressure point massage, by taping metal acupressure or magnets, by inserting tiny acupuncture needles or by placing small moxibustion (heat) pads on the relevant points.
