What is Korean Hand Massage?
Korean Massage is a form of therapy based on the understanding that hands are microcosms of the body. Developed by Korean Acupuncturist, Dr. Tae Woo Yoo, who discovered the function of the human body could be manipulated and regulated by stimulating the corresponding points of the hands, similar to foot or hand reflexology. For example – every joint in the hand represents a joint in the body and because the hands and feet are believed to carry connections to the entire map of the body, this form of massage is also a quick way to balance out your entire system.

What to expect?
Korean Hand Massage incorporates the concept of massaging and targeting very specific pressure points on the hand that connect to various associated areas on the body, similar to acupressure. (It does not involve any needles like acupuncture). As well as massage techniques, the therapist may use a specially designed hand roller to work points on the hands and fingers. This can be combined with gentle joint mobilisation techniques to create a truly unique and relaxing treatment.
