Korean (Koryo) Hand Acupuncture Chart
Koryo Hand Therapy is a scientific medical system that is quite simple to learn and easy to perform without any side effects or danger.

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.
