1. What is this course about?
    This course will give you the opportunity to add your existing massage skills. It will enable you
to provide your clients with new technique which will enhance their treatments.

    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 in 2006, a qualified tutor and western & eastern therapist.

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

The principle of Meridian Stretch Massage is to stimulate along the meridian by stretching
muscles & 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.
