MERIDAN MASSAGE THERAPY
Meridians are a set of pathways in the body along which vital energy is said to flow. There are twelve such pathways associated with specific organs.
What are Meridians?
Meridians are channels through which qi (energy) and the other fundamental substances of life flow. Think of them like a network or highway – a vast network of invisible energy pathways connecting to each other and every cell, bone, organ and tissue in your body. Meridians are similar to the cardiovascular system and lymphatic system, and act as a third circulatory system called the primo-vascular system which conducts bio-electrical and vibrational energy.
What do they Do?
While the collective system of meridians in your body is large, there are 12 primary meridian points that are considered to be the most important in acupuncture. These meridians run on each side of the body, mirroring each other and each meridian corresponds to an internal organ, forming a yin and yang pair. Energy and blood flow through these meridians as well as information that sends signals that help regulate body temperature, when to release water, emotion, etc. to help coordinate organ function.
As long as qi (energy) flows freely, your body remains balanced and healthy. However, illness, injury, trauma, stress, or poor living habits (diet, addictions, lack of exercise) can cause your body’s meridians to become clogged or blocked. This will affect the function of the corresponding organ, and ultimately the whole body-mind-spirit.
How does Functional Medicine Help?
This is where Traditional Chinese Medicine comes in. Andi has been trained to recognize and stimulate energy points in these meridians to stimulate healing through a variety of treatment modalities. Food, herbs, acupuncture, acupressure, cupping, laser therapy and more can help unblock the meridians so qi (energy) can flow freely again.

Trigger point therapy is a therapeutic practice where the Massage therapist will apply pressure and release techniques to deactivate specific point in the muscle fibres. Once this pressure is applied it will defer pain into another area of the body allowing the root cause of the issue to be released ensuring the complaint is resolved.
Deep tissue massage offers both physical and psychological benefits. It can relieve muscle pain and stiffness and provide stress-relieving relaxation for the body and mind
What does my massage therapy involve?
Andi will apply pressure, stretch, and massage your muscles to help relieve physical, mental, and emotional tension. Some treatments involve touching over clothes, while others she uses essential oils directly on your skin to reduce stress and pain, and to aid muscle recovery.
Benefits of AFGC Massage therapy...
Relieve Your Pain Naturally
Therapeutic massage can loosen your tight muscles, get your blood flowing, and calm your mind. AFGC will focus on specific problem areas of your body, as well as stiff muscles, and gradually loosen them with increasing blood circulation. These actions help alleviate pain tied to injuries, arthritis and a range of other conditions. After regular sessions you may see benefits like a reduction in need for pain medications.
Solve Your Pain & Injuries
While the goal of physical rehabilitation is to increase strength and flexibility, it often ends before the area has been returned to its full pre-injury state. Massage plays an important role as a supplement to standard injury rehabilitation procedures. It helps the body pump more oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs. This allows the rehabilitating injured area to become more flexible and heal at an accelerated rate.
Boost Your Immunity
It’s a well-known fact that people with a busy or stressful lifestyle are more likely to get sick more often. This stress often leads to a myriad of other negative side effects such as lack of sleep, a bad diet and a weakened immune system. Regular massage sessions help alleviate stress and, as a result, have been proven to naturally increase the immune system’s cytotoxic capacity – aka its ability to fight off bacteria and infection.
Improve Your Posture
Bad posture can be corrected with regular massages. When you undergo treatment you allow your body to begin to reintroduce healthier movements. The massage itself will alleviate any pain caused by your bad posture. This will enable your body to position itself in its natural-and pain-free-posture. With ongoing massage the body will begin to naturally position itself in a healthy posture, steering clear of the bad posture.
