Meridian Stretch Massage


Meridian Stretch Massage is based on Chinese Acupressure Massage with Korean  

Kyung-Rak and Japanese Shiatsu techniques. This technique of meridian stretch massage was developed by Wan-Hye Park, a qualified tutor and western & eastern therapist.

This technique works on the whole body to relax and energize through meridian stretch and uses gentle finger & palm pressure on the meridians. It can be applied through clothes or on the skin directly. All treatment movements & techniques work with the natural breathing rhythms of the client to which the therapist tunes in.

The principle of Meridian Stretch Massage is to stimulate along the meridian by stretching massage & using acupressure points for tonification & sedation on the meridians. This could encourage better or smoother body energy flow.

After the treatment the client should benefit from relaxation of the full body and an energized feeling.
