In Chinese medicine, good health begins with your feet. In Korea, Western medicine is practised alongside Chinese methods, so perhaps these slippers discovered in Korean Mother's apartment should come as no surprise. Each raised rubberised area along the inside corresponds to a particular area of the body, which is explained in writing. The idea is that by walking around with these on inside your apartment you are massaging your feet in all the right areas to improve your health. However, while they are very light, they are not very comfortable. Much like acupuncture, I suppose you have to suffer for your health sometimes here.
