Imagine a form of deep tissue massage in which various pressure points are stimulated throughout the body in a rhythmic flow to alleviate pain, increase range of motion, and relax the entire nervous system. Massage techniques from the Japanese Shiatsu style and the Chinese Tuina style are utilized for a unique experience offered only at Fourth Meridian. Practitioners make use of their entire body weight and use their elbows, forearms, knees, feet, or knuckles to breakup knots and adhesions to restore proper body mechanics. Pulling, grasping, kneading, oscillation, and stretching techniques are also used. This style of massage utilizes the knowledge of fascial bands and acupressure points rather than isolated muscle groupings, offering a far more holistic treatment for pain.
