|Koryo Hand Therapy(KHT) is called Koryo Sooji Chim,
Korean Hand Acupuncture or Soojichim. KHT(Koryo Hand Therapy)
theorizes that the hands are a micro-cosmos of the body.
The function of the human body can be manipulated by stimulating
the corresponding points on our hands.
According to the theory of 'Koryo Hand Therapy', there
are 14 micro-meridians and 345 acupuncture points on our
hands which regulate the internal organs of human body.
These acupuncture points may be stimulated by using the
following instruments : Hand Needles, Seoam Press-Pellets,
Seaom Moxa, E-beam, Magnets, KHT Silver Ring, or Cyber
Hand Therapy (mind vibration).
Thus the physiological function of the entire body can
be regulated by stimulating these acupuncture points on
The theory of Koryo Hand Therapy was first originated,
studied and developed by The Korean acupuncturist, Dr.
Tae Woo Yoo between 1971 and 1975. Since that time Koryo
Hand Therapy has spread to the public worldwide.
Koryo Hand Therapy is a scientific medical system that
is quite simple to learn and easy to perform without any
side effects or danger to the patient.
If you are in pain or have a problem somewhere in your
body, the reactions are reflected on the hands in the
form of tender points. Pain commonly or frequently shown
on the hands corresponds to the painful part of your body.
Therefore, the stimulation of the tender points positively
affects pain relief.
KHT Therapy is divided into Correspondence, Micromeridian,
Five Element, Eight Extra Ordinary Points and Special
Points Therapy. Thus the results of scientific method
of experiment have proven the positive results of KHT
KHT diagnoses can be divided into Correspondence Points,
Three Constitutions, Yin and Yang Pulse Diagnosis, Electronic
Beam, Biorhythm and Five Finger Diagnosis.
Koryo Sooji Chim is very effective in treating a wide
range of ailments such as infertility, rheumatic arthritis,
allergy and stroke, but there are limits to what it can
accomplish. Clearly, conditions that require surgery and
infectious diseases can not be cured using hand acupuncture.
However, KHT treatment can play a useful part in complementing
Western Medicine by alleviating pain and promoting recovery
and lessen the side effects of chemotherapy in cancer
patients, relieving nausea, so that the patients can continue
to receive the treatment.
KHT contributes to the maintenance of a persons health
as well as self-diagnosis. It is possible to perform self
treatment, treat family members and even employ KHT as
a volunteer activity for charity.
The research of KHT has been actively spread since Koryo
Hand Therapy Institute and Yin Yang Maek Jin Publishing
Co.Ltd. was established in 1977. Nowadays, there are 170
domestic branches and 27 overseas branches established
all over the world.
The members are estimated to be about three million. In
addition, volunteer members who practice KHT for charity
are estimated to be about 200 groups.
