Meridian Massage: working with the intelligence of your body for healing and balance

The meridians in the body, or pathways of lifeforce energy, when balanced promote optimal body health and function. Meridian Massage is a technique that gets straight to the core of what's needed for your personal healing.

Imagine your body as a vessel full of electrical circuits. Each of these circuits pumps intelligence and communicates with the other circuits in the body. When these circuits (or meridians) are not in harmony, this leads to mental, emotional, spiritual and physical dis-ease.

The body knows how to heal, and when all meridians are in harmony, the body's intelligence can be activated and utilized.

To fully understand the wisdom of Meridian Massage, it is helpful to get to know its ancient roots.

Shiatsu, meaning "finger pressure" in Japanese, is an ancient massage technique that most likely stemmed from the Chinese practice, Tui Na. Although Shiatsu got its name in the 1920's, this practice was used long before that time. The healing modality of Tui Na was passed from China to Japan in 700 AD, which molded into a practice called Anma that was created by Tokujiro Namikoshi at the age of 7. A student of Namikoshi, Shizuto Masunaga, then developed Keiraku (or Zen Shiatsu as it's known in the West). What differentiates Keiraku from Tui Na, Anma, and Shiatsu, is the simple focus on meridians.

In today's world, where we are guided to focus on more and modern... Modern cars, more money, etc... what has remained the same is the intelligence of our bodies, and what our bodies need to function at full capacity. Meridian Massage is a therapy that has maintained this understanding, and is an option that will work directly with your body's needs in a simple yet profound way.

Whether you are struggling mentally, emotionally, spiritually or physically, or just want to feel better but don't know exactly what is not in alignment; Meridian Massage, the practice with ancient roots and deep wisdom, is here for you.
