1. What is this course about?
Korean Hand Acupuncture/Therapy (KHA/T) was developed by Dr. Tae-Woo Yoo in Korea in 1971. KHA works on the body through correspondence points in the hand. Each hand has 14 meridians with acu- points distributed along these meridians. By stimulating these points, it is believed that the physical body functions can be balanced and, to a degree, regulated.

    KHA has 3 theories: a. Body Correspondence Theory
b. Jang-Bu Theory
c. 14 Meridian Theory

KHA treatments use pellets, needles, moxa, or electronic beam depending on the symptoms.
Treatment takes from a minimum of 20 minutes up to 60 minutes, again depending on symptoms and which instrument is used.

KHA is popular in Korea where more than 3 million Koreans have learnt KHA for general health maintenance and first aid purpose.
