Korean Hand Acupuncture (KHT)
Korean hand acupuncture treats the hand as the nerve meridian design of the body, but in miniature. According to the Koryo Hand Theory, the hands have 14 meridians and 345 pressure points that coincide to other parts of the body. KHT is meant to treat similar complaints to that of classic acupuncture, such as muscular and skeletal pain, nausea, asthma, insomnia and PMS. The therapy may be exclusively suitable for the treatment of pediatric patients as well as pregnant women, who may not be adequate to lie on their stomachs for long periods of time.
