Grand Master Shin told us a story about the origins of medicine. In the mountains herbs were discovered and mastered, in the city body work and massage were discovered and mastered, and by the oceans acupuncture was discovered and mastered. A long, long time ago fisherman accidently pricked themselves with fish bones and discovered pain went away. They experimented and discovered that by using these hollow fish bones and pricking them into specific points on the body they could cure illness.

The meridan system is the foundation of the acupuncture system. Meridians are the energy pathways that flow within the body, that carries the essential life force, known as Chi, Qi or Gi in Korean culture. When energy flows freely then health is experienced, when there is a blockage in the Gi then illness will start to show itself. There are 12 main meridian systems in the body that relate to the organs and all aspects of the body. Along these meridians are acupuncture points. Traditional Chinese Medicine holds that there are over 400 and up to 2000 acupuncture points on the body. Acupuncture works by stimulating specific points to rebalance the Gi or Chi in the body, affecting physical, emotional and mental wellbeing.
In Korean Hand Acupuncture the hand has 345 acupuncture points that relate to the body. Similar to the reflexology of the foot. The Korean Hand Acupuncture and reflex map of the hand was officially discovered in 1971 by Dr. Tae-Woo Yoo, O.M.D., PhD. in Korea and has been clinically and experimentally tested for accuracy.
Information concerning pain and disease is recorded in the hands at the location that corresponds to the body. It can be found using a small probe on the hand. The points requiring balance will be painful and easy to spot. Stimulation of that point, either via acupuncture needles, pins or moxibustion and the problem instantly begins to change/disappear. As soon as these points are stimulated it sends a message to the brain to rectify the problem and the energy begins to change.
Korean Hand Acupuncture is known for its’ incredible ability to reduce pain. It is one of the best and most fast acting natural remedies for pain and malfunction in the body. The nerves in the hand are 50 times more sensitive than in other parts of the body and is therefore very effective at signalling the brain to make corrections, and stimulate the healing process. There is a very high concentration of neurological connections between the hands and the brain.
When tiny pins (2mm) are used in the required points of the hand and taped and left in for up to eight days, you are receiving constant acupuncture benefits 24/7.
Korean Hand Acupuncture is safe and effective for all ages for both acute and chronic conditions.
