Acupuncture is a form of alternative medicine which is defined as the stimulation of precisely defined acupuncture points along the skin of the body using thin needles. Acupuncture is considered a key component of traditional Chinese medicine and dates back as far as the Stone Age.
Hand acupuncture however, was developed in Korea (believed to be the second country that acupuncture spread to outside of China) and centers around the reflex zones of the hand. According to the theory of Korean Hand Therapy, there are 14 micro-meridians and 345 acupuncture points on our hands which regulate the internal organs of human body. The acupuncture is performed by using any of the following instruments: Hand Needles, Seoam Press-Pellets, Seaom Moxa, E-beam, Magnets, KHT Silver Ring, or Cyber Hand Therapy (mind vibration).
Hand acupuncture can be effective in treating such ailments as infertility, arthritis, allergy and stroke. Conditions that require surgery and infectious diseases can not be cured using hand acupuncture.
Although hand acupuncture started in China and moved to Korea, it has now spread to the public and is practiced in clinical settings worldwide.
