Massage therapy

Deep-Tissue Meridian Massage is an effective technique for all ages to alleviate common health problems, such as, cold, cough, respiratory problems, body pains, menstrual problems, fluid retention, headache/migraine, insomnia, and many more. Massage therapy can help to achieve total wellness in the body and prevent illness.

Meridians (also known as acupressure vessels) are energy pathways, a system or networking of invisible bodily energy (qi) channels that run and recharge the body's energy fields. The meridians interconnect deep within the body's core and contain specific acupressure points along each meridian channel. They can be envisioned as highways between the acupressure points in the body. Qi, blood, yin and yang are transported using the meridians to nourish the entire body, thus, ensuring good health of our organs and other parts of the body. Meridians are either yin or yang, depending on the direction they flow on the body's surface. The yang meridians run from the the fingers to the face or from the face to the feet on the outer (yang) part of the body. Yin meridians run from the feet to the torso or from the torso to the fingertips on the inner (yin) side of the body. If a blockage or disrupted flow of qi and blood is present in the meridians, or an excessive or insufficient qi & blood, we may fall ill as a result.

Massage therapy can facilitate the stimulation of these important meridians and help to bring about greater balance of the body's energetic forces, by restoring the qi, blood, yin and yang.
