Eastern vs. Western Massage

My approach to healing is Western massage.  Western is based on Western concepts of anatomy, pathology, and physiology. Western massage works on various parts of body, such as the nervous system and the musculoskeletal system, for the purpose of realigning and restoring the whole system. It combines five basic strokes: effleurage (gliding), friction, percussion (tapping), petrissage (kneading), and vibration. 

The other main approach in massage is the Eastern massage, which addresses energy flow and balance within the body, stimulating and soothing specific points along the energy meridians to create effects at other sites along those meridians.
