MEridians & tissue Manipulation (mtm)

WHAT IS MTM?

 

This is a new deep corrective massage to revitalise strained muscle tissues, unlock muscle knots, reduce muscle stiffness and to provide effective relief to stubborn muscle aches caused by the repeated stress and demands of modern lifestyles. Suitable for both male and females, the therapy attempts to revitalise muscle tissues and unblock tendon and ligament knots.

The meridians and tissue manipulation technique first developed in Taiwan is applied by a well- trained therapist who uses a set of customised ox horn massage rods to reach meridian channels, acupuncture points and deep connective tissues (fascia) and muscles. The long treatment strokes address the deficiency of “qi”(life energy) in the body thus re-energising muscle tissues and bringing relief to chronic muscle aches. More significantly, MTM therapy results in overall rejuvenation of the body by stimulating the body organs and encouraging the body’s natural mechanisms to self-heal and self-restore. 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Meridians, Tissue Manipulation (MTM) treatment is based on the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) philosophy that external appearance is influenced by internal health. MTM therapists use specially crafted buffalo horn tools that allow them to extend efficacy to unlock knots in deep tissues and muscles. This provides significantly more effective relief for chronic pain, muscle stiffness and fibromyalgia. What about meridians you ask? TCM practitioners believe that meridians are the channels in our bodies through which the life-energy known as Qi flows. MTM massages specifically address these meridians, working on reducing blockages caused by health complications.

DIFFERENCES BETWEEN MTM AND OTHER TRADITIONAL TCM MASSAGE:

MTM sets itself apart from other TCM massage treatments which generally work on superficial skin and muscle levels. MTM on the other hand targets the fascia structure. The fascia is the layer of connective tissue surrounding muscles and muscle groups, blood vessels, and nerves; it binds some structures together while permitting others to slide smoothly over each other). Simultaneously, MTM works to stimulate the various meridians in the body to eradicate the cold and stagnant “qi” from the body, and treats the root cause of ailments.

DIFFERENCES BETWEEN MTM AND OTHER TRADITIONAL TCM MASSAGE:

• Beauty Concerns (such as Face lift, Butt lift)
• Body Sculpting/Contouring
• Body Aches (Chronic and Acute)
• Body Wellness (Restoring organ functions to optimal levels)
• Muscle tension & stiffness (Restoring joint mobility and flexibility)

The benefits of MTM are lasting, and non-reversible. Consistent treatment will ensure that problems do not resurface even after the treatment is completed. However, ending the treatment prematurely may affect the ideal beauty and wellness target goal.
