Acupressure is and ancient specialized technique used to relieve pain, discomfort, stiffness, muscular spasms, physical strain, and other muscular issues. An acupressure massage is beneficial in opening up blockages, increasing blood flow and flexibility, and easing stiffness and soreness.
Deep Tissue Massage -
Deep Tissue Massage utilizes deep pressure upon the muscles to release chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of your muscle tissue including the muscle, tendons, and the muscle fascia (the protective layer surrounding your muscles, joints, and tendons). It is especially beneficial to people with old injuries or chronic stiffness, soreness, or limited motion. An old injury can often leave adhesions and scar tissue, which a deep tissue massage will help to release.
Manual Therapies –
Manual Therapy is a clinical approach that uses a hands-on technique of manipulation and mobilization to ease and regulate pain, increase range of motion, improve circulation, relieve muscle spasms, and reduce inflammation. It is ideal for chronic sufferers of low back pain, neck pain, muscle soreness and stiffness, migraines and headaches, and joint dysfunction. The three main manual therapies used at Meridian are:
Muscle Energy - This technique uses special positioning and your own muscle contractions to bring your body back into balance.
Jones Point - This gentle technique uses easy movement to put you in a position of comfort which naturally allows your muscles to reset.
Chapmen Reflex Points - This technique stimulates into healing the small discrete bumps that occur under the skin as a response to pain and

This technique is highly effective for sufferers of headaches, fibromyalgia, sciatica, tendinitis, chronic muscle soreness, symatic joint dysfunction and acute muscle spasms.

Swedish Massage -
The long, gliding strokes of the Swedish Massage are perfect for relaxing the entire body. However, the therapeutic benefits are deeper than just relaxation. A Swedish Massage will improve circulation, ease tension, increase flexibility, decrease toxins in the muscles, reduce inflammation and fatigue, increase immunity, and relieve muscle soreness.
Muscle Energy –
The Muscle Energy Technique is a treatment used by physical therapists and massage therapists to increase muscular range of motion, reduce pain, and increase muscle tone. Muscle Energy is an active massage that requires the patient’s participation. By actively guiding the patient’s muscles in a controlled force/counterforce manner, the muscles are stimulated towards healing.
Travell Trigger Point Work –
Trigger Point therapy is especially beneficial for people with chronic pain and soreness but is also effective for new pain. By applying pressure to the points within the muscle that are problematic, blood flow decreases and allows them to reset to normal positions. The benefits of Trigger Point therapy include: increased range of motion, reduction in headaches, improved flexibility, increased circulation, relieve muscle spasms, reduce muscle soreness and tension.
Deep Myofascial Release -
The Myofascia is the tissue that surrounds and protects muscles, connective tissue, and bones. It is a tough, flexible tissue that in a healthy state protects and defines muscle tissue. If it is damaged or traumatized in any way, tightness can occur that lead to problems including headaches, muscle spasms, pain, injury, illness, and reduced range of motion. Deep Myfoscial Release works to correct any problems and release the surrounding tissues thus restoring healthy muscle function.
Reflexology is the application of appropriate pressure on specific points on the feet, hands, and ears known as reflex points that reflexologists believe are connected to other zones in the body via the nervous system. By stimulating reflex points, areas of concern and problems are also stimulated into healing.
Stretching for health and well-being -
Stretching is incorporated into all of our massages and is an important aspect in healing. Clients who require more indepth stretching sessions, may want to take our Body Balance Class.
Essential oils -
We offer a myriad of essential oils to our clients during massage therapies. Our three most popular oils are Energy Oil, Stress Relief Oil and Muscle & Joint Pain Oil. Essential oils are an ancient medical practice that not only heal and refresh us, but they also stimulate our senses and bring us memories of times gone by. For example, the smell of fresh cut grass reminds of us lazy summer days which bring feelings of warmth and happiness. Adding essential oils to your massage can stimulate not only your senses, but positive emotions as well. Ask your therapist if essential oils are right for your condition.
