A Meridian massage is an ancient form of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
The massage stimulates the acupressure points using various techniques to help clear any blockage and balance the flow of qi & blood in the meridians.
Meridians are like rivers, carrying the flow of energy (Qi) just like a river carries the flow of water to different destinations in a specific direction.
These meridian pathways work by distributing energy, nutrients, and blood across the body in just about the same way as the circulatory system.
There are 12 major meridians in a body and these meridian lines are all connected to major organs.

Gall Bladder Meridian
The gall bladder meridian regulates the removal and storage of toxins that are produced by the liver.
The liver meridian regulates the female reproductive system, circulation of energy, and maintains the flexibility of the ligaments and the tendons.
Eventually, these internal meridians will come to the surface of the skin, where it becomes external.
Acupoints are located on the external pathways.
Hence, if there is an issue with a particular channel or organ, these problems can be addressed by treating various points.
When these pressure points are being stimulated, it activates a series of networks along the meridian.
This activation is what then carries the effect of the massage from one end of the body to another providing the desired healing effect.
Getting a Meridian massage can definitely help to re-balance your system and enhance your overall health.
