Early Chinese, Japanese, Indian and Egyptians worked on the hands and feet to promote good health. The theory of Korean Hand Therapy was first originated and developed by the Korean acupuncturist, Dr Tae Woo Yoo during the 1970’s. Since then Korean Hand Therapy has spread to the public worldwide. It theorizes that the hands are a micro-cosmos of the body, every part of the body has a corresponding reflex point on the hands. Pain, tension and disease are reflected in hands as ‘tender points’. Locating and treating these points helps to alleviate pain and also encourages the body to cleanse itself of impurities and toxins, whilst soothing and revitalizing energy levels.
Included within this wonderfully relaxing hand and arm massage are the basic elements of hand reflexology and acupressure to help bring the body into balance.
Due to todays’ intense use of keyboards many of us are suffering from RSI or Carpel Tunnel Syndrome. This style of massage helps reduce fatigue in tendons, ligaments and muscles of the hands and arms and encourage joint mobility.
In the summer months you may have the treatment outside on the cool, shady deck.
Whilst relaxing on the massage couch a suitable, organic balm is applied to the arms and hands. During the routine, hands and the tip of the thumbs are used to massage and work on reflex points. Techniques used in the treatment include effleurage, kneading, stretching and vibration. After the treatment, the arms and hands will feel noticeably relaxed, light and airy. It is recommended that a sleeveless top is worn.
