Korean Hand Acupressure (known as Koryo Sooji Chim) works on the theory that the hands are microcosms of the body.  This therapy was first originated, studied and developed by a Korean Acupuncturist, Dr. Tae Woo Yoo, who found that the function of the human body could be manipulated and regulated by stimulating the corresponding points of the hands.

In the Korean system of hand acupressure the acupuncture points on the human body are matched by corresponding points on the hands.  In addition the meridians or channels of classical acupuncture theory correspond to so-called "micro-meridians" in the hands.  These micro-meridians and the acupressure points are supposed to be able to affect the corresponding organs of parts of the body. For instance, the points along the middle finger correspond to the acupuncture points on the human head.  So you can treat the head by manipulating the relevant points on the middle finger.  Every joint in the hand represents a joint in the body and the therapy is an especially good treatment for muscular-skeletal problems.  This system also applies to the feet and you will learn a Korean Foot Acupressure treatment as well as hand treatment

This treatment is totally different to any Hand Reflexology treatment as it works more on the premise of an acupuncture treatment.
