Meridian Massage combines the theory of Chinese medicine with hands-on healing. Usually, Chinese medicine is only equated with Acupuncture. However, there is a lot more to the story.
Chinese medical theory was created thousands of years ago, and it is the foundation for many practices including herbology, meditation, massage, nutrition, Qi Gong, Taiji, acupuncture, cupping, and moxibustion. The central theory of Chinese medicine has been interpreted by many cultures over the centuries.
Meridian Massage – beginnings
I began my career in Massage Therapy in 1990. After developing a successful private practice, I co-founded the Finger Lakes School of Massage in Ithaca, NY. I steeped myself in the art of teaching hands-on healing for 10 years.
My next endeavor was the study of Chinese medicine. During my three and half year study of acupuncture and herbology, I integrated Chinese medical theory with my massage skills. I continue to explore how to use hands-on contact with acupoints to balance the energy, referred to as Qi (“chee”).
Meridian Massage and Chinese Medicine
The basis of Meridian Massage is Classical Chinese medical theory. I no longer practice Acupuncture. I use my hands rather than needles. I returned to teaching a few years ago to share Meridian Massage. The techniques of Meridian Massage include gentle and mindful contact to the meridians, acupoints, and abdominal organs.
I have been teaching the theory online for four years, primarily to professional Massage Therapists and practitioners of hands-on healing. The experience has been overwhelmingly positive. Online students combine Meridian Massage training with what they already know to get better results.
