What is a Meridian?
In the Chinese medicine, meridians (also known as acupressure vessels) are energy pathways, a network of invisible bodily energy (qi) channels that run and recharge the body’s energy fields. The meridians interconnect deep within the body core and there are specific acupressure points along the meridians. They can be envisioned as highways between the acupressure points in the body. Modern Western medicine tools have been used to map the acupressure points located along meridian pathways electronically, radioactively and thermally.
Why Meridian Facial?
Meridian massage includes specialized tools, which stroke the skin in the direction of the flow of blood and lymph, improving circulation, removing toxins, lifting sagging facial contours, minimizing fine lines and wrinkles, and improving radiance.
Meridian facial massage has been shown to awaken the skin's natural ability to regenerate, firm, and lift the face, while also improving microcirculation, toning facial muscles and clearing lymphatic pathways.
400% INCREASE THE FACE CIRCULATION OF BLOOD
An article published by Harvard University showed meridian massage helps improve microcirculation significantly. Studies performed at the University Hospital in Essen, Germany showed "a 400% increase in microperfusion" (surface circulation of blood). The improved blood flow evens out the skin tone and gives a healthy, natural glow.
LIFTS SAGGING CONTOURS
Meridian massage not only smooths facial muscles, but also fascia – the underlying structures of the face – which lifts sagging facial contours, recontours the face and minimizes fine lines and wrinkles.
REDUCES DARK CIRCLES
The increased oxygen uptake caused by Meridian Massage reduces the appearance of dark circles under the eyes.
Meridian massage not only increases blood flow, but also helps clear toxins, both of which help to improve acne problems.
RESTORES RESILIENCY Improved circulation stimulates collagen tissue, making skin more resilient.
How does work?

This facial is designed to lift and tone the skin to reveal noticeable results when repeated.
It starts with a massage along the meridian lines on the scalp and the sides of the head with the Meridian Fish tool to awaken the senses and reduce tension.
