Meridian 알바 massage treatment is performed by trained massage therapists, aiming to assist in restoring normal function of the body following an injury or with a muscular-skeletal condition. Through Chinese medicine, Meridian massage is designed to heal injuries to the body and to promote overall wellbeing. In traditional Chinese medicine, the meridians are channels which form a network within the body, where vital body energy known as Qi flows, and connects acupuncture points on the body.
Traditional Chinese medical theories describe specific acupoints, or points of pressure, located along meridians, or channels, in your body. Acupressure comes from Traditional Chinese medicine, which contains a system of meridians spanning across your entire body. Used in conjunction with acupuncture, acupressure is an alternative medical method which uses the concept of the energy flowing in the life force across meridians.
While acupuncture uses needles to stimulate different pressure points throughout the body, Acupressure is done by stimulating those points with massage therapy. All of these manual techniques are designed to stimulate acupressure points, which causes a chain reaction down the meridians, which gives out health benefits that enhance an individuals wellbeing. During a meridian massage, several acupressure points are massaged onto the body using various hand techniques, such as rolling, tapping, and cupping.
What makes a meridian massage different from conventional massage is that all the massage techniques are applied in systematic order according to a meridian line inside the body. An authentic meridian massage is performed by a trained therapist in order to stimulate the meridian lines within the pathways of our bodies through which energy flows. Thai massage is performed oil-free, following the system of the meridians, which are made up of the sen lines.
Swedish massage is performed with oil or other lubricants, and uses five different types of strokes to manipulate soft body tissues. Similar to Swedish Massage Therapy, Deep Tissue Massage is used to loosen up the whole body, but is used to target deep muscle tissues using deeper pressure.
Massage refers to manipulation of the soft tissues of the body in order to heal pain or stress in the body. While acupressure treatments include applying pressure on trigger points or acupuncture points, massage treatments include manipulating soft tissues while clients are sitting in a massage chair or lying down on massage tables or mats. Acupressure works by the same principles as acupuncture, but instead of using needles, the pressure is applied using fingers, thumbs, and other body parts.
I would never call reflexology a foot massage, as massage is focused on the soft tissues and relaxing muscles, while reflexology is based on working on the reflex maps of your feet, hands, ears, and face, as well as your nervous system. In my humble opinion, if I refer to reflexology as foot massage, it becomes confusing to my clients. If the client wanted an inside job for a medical condition with which reflexology studies show improvements, or if I knew clients that had been helped with reflexology for this condition, I would offer reflexology, not massage, with a disclaimer that reflexology treatments are not a substitute for medical treatments, and that each person reacts differently, and we would simply need to see how his body responded to reflexology.
A massage therapist would generally employ a combination of techniques from conventional Western massage therapy, as well as from typical acupressure massage. Remedial massage therapists are also trained in specific massage techniques, such as Swedish, deep tissue, trigger point, myofascial release, manual lymph drainage, and sports massage. Meridian Remedial Massage is also used to treat conditions caused by lifestyle, for example, repetitive strain injuries and back pain.
Meridian massage therapy is a form of alternative medicine, which helps to relax the entire body, as well as to heal the muscular disorders caused by an imbalanced lifestyle. Typically, Meridian massage is used to maintain ones body on a weekly basis in order to foster optimum overall state of ones health, often more effectively at soothing new injuries (imbalances) occurring during the week. Adapted from ancient Gua Sha techniques, meridian massage integrates the meridian theories from traditional Chinese medicine used in acupuncture with Western aesthetic techniques, massaging the facial points on key meridians along the energy pathways using unique tools for increased circulation, younger-looking skin, and general well-being.
Meridian massage is a gentle, mindful touch on the points using acupressure combined with self-care practices and lifestyle changes to promote harmony in the body, mind, and spirit. The massage will consist mostly of long flowing movements down a meridian, punctuated by specific pressure points. The Meridian facial is a traditional European-style face treatment that includes a thorough cleanse, exfoliation, extractions, and skin hydration, and deep tissue face massage combined with Meridian massage.

Thai massage can also involve being massaged on the feet of a therapist, while having their weight supported with a metal bar attached to the ceiling of the treatment room. Many people find reflexology to be even more relaxing than full-body massage, possibly because they do not need to remove clothes, and because the work is done away from their heads, or because the feet, hands, and faces contain more nerve endings than other parts of the body. The practice of meridian massage may help to cure common daily ailments like migraines, insomnia, stress, or even constipation, which are caused by bad lifestyle choices.
