Infinity’s Gift Guide for Meridian Health
As the holiday season approaches, the spirit of giving takes center stage. This year, why not give your loved ones and yourself something truly special – the gift of meridian health and well-being.
Infinity Flexibility promotes holistic wellness so our gift guide doesn’t contain conventional gift ideas. The gifts in Infinity’s guide blend self-care with the wisdom of traditional Chinese medicine, ensuring the holidays are not just a time of celebration but also a season of rejuvenation and balance.
From self-massage balls to rejuvenating lymphatic drainage treatments, soothing castor oil packs, and the cozy warmth of a biomat, each carefully chosen item is a step towards keeping your meridians in harmony for better overall wellness.
Infinity’s Gift Guide for Meridian Health
Infinity’s gift guide contains a blend of self-care products and meridian services to balance your meridians and align the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual energies in your body and life.
1. Massage/Self-Massage Balls
Massage is a good gift any time of the year. Not only does it relieve physical pain and tension, but it also reduces anxiety and stress.
Infinity offers deep tissue muscle mashing for active people who need tension relief. We work along the meridian lines to find the source of your pain. It’s not uncommon for our clients to feel an emotional release due to our work together!
When you strategically place these massage balls along the meridian lines, you can find relief from tension and pain throughout the body. Self-massage balls are most commonly used in the car or while traveling. They are easy to pack and provide relief from tight muscles on the go.
To use, place them where you feel discomfort and count to seven slowly in your head. Buy our favorite tune-up balls online or we carry a selection of massage balls at our office. Pair them with an Infinity Gift Card for the perfect self-care gift.
2. Lymphatic Drainage
Phyto5 lymphatic drainage is one of Infinity’s favorite treatments. The biorhythmic drainer helps pull lymph fluid from your extremities into your lymph nodes. This process not only reduces swelling but supports healthy detox processes and enhances immune function.
During lymphatic drainage, we move along the meridian pathways and use quality aromatherapeutic products that access deeper healing. Overall, lymphatic drainage is a powerful treatment for anyone looking to support a healthy body and glowing skin.
Infinity’s personal favorite is our signature Breathing Free treatment. We focus on the upper back, legs, and chest to remove any stagnation from respiratory illnesses. The back exfoliation treatment that features a combination of violet clay and manual lymphatic drainage is also perfect to support your overall health and wellness during the transition of the seasons.
Purchase a 5-session Infinity Gift Card for seasonal detox and try one of each of the five-element Phyto5 lymphatic drainage treatments – fire, earth, water, metal, and wood.
Biomat uses far infrared (FIR) light, negative ions, and amethyst to reduce pain and inflammation. Infinity always places a Biomat on our massage table. FIR light is the most beneficial light wave.
Studies have shown that Biomat can provide relief from chronic pain and fatigue, improve cardiac and vascular function, lessen inflammation, and speed up recovery from exercise.
Other benefits of Biomat include:
- Temporary relief from minor muscle pain, joint pain, and muscle spasms
- Weight loss
- Enhanced immune function
- Less stress and fatigue
- Better sleep
To use the Biomat, place your mat on your bed or a comfortable surface. Lie on it until you feel the heat and start to sweat. Stay on the mat for 15 to 45 minutes. Don’t forget to drink plenty of water before and after!
4. Castor Oil Packs – Queen of the Thrones
Castor oil packs are another powerful at-home detox treatment that we love here at Infinity. Anyone can do them at home with a minimum of ingredients. We recommend the Queen of Thrones products for beginners!
The benefits of castor oil packs include reducing inflammation, improving lymphatic drainage, and detoxifying the liver. Castor oil packs are even recommended to eliminate bone spurs.
If you’re unfamiliar with the process of using castor oil packs, all you do is add castor oil to a piece of flannel fabric. Option to put a heat pack over the top for extra comfort! Relax with your castor oil pack in place for an hour or so.
Detox is a process, so you may want to start slow with a castor oil pack once a week. Packs are available for the abdomen, the liver, thyroid, breast, and children’s sizes. Infinity will soon be offering castor oil packs for sale in our Natick office.
5. Holistic Health Books
For those of you who know us, you know that we love reading and learning. We have dozens of books that we recommend to our clients, but our favorite for meridian strength and flexibility is the Genius of Flexibility by Bob Cooley.
Many years ago, we worked with Bob Cooley and began our journey working with and healing the meridians. We love the Genius of Flexibility because it contains four sets of self and assisted exercises arranged from beginner, intermediate, assisted, and advanced. It’s a great reference book for doing strength and flexibility work at home.
For those of you who are looking to heal your body and eat better in the New Year, Clean Eats by Alejandro Junger and The Specific Carbohydrate Diet by Raman Prasad are two inspiring diet books to get you started. Both help you eliminate foods like gluten, dairy, and sugar that contribute to inflammation and chronic disease/illness.
6. Pilates Magic Circle
Infinity Flexibility started our journey in holistic wellness as a Pilates instructor! While that aspect of our business has taken a back seat, we still love to recommend the Pilates Magic Circle for meridian health.
Squeezing the magic circle between your knees activates the liver meridian, a notoriously underused muscle group and meridian. If you want, you can schedule a flexibility and strength training session at Infinity and we will show you how to use the magic circle to activate different meridians.
7. Stretch Out Straps
While we love working with our clients in person, Infinity’s mission is to help you reduce pain and tension in your body – permanently. Realistically, that means you will have to do some of the work at home on your own time.
Stretch-out straps make even the most inaccessible stretches possible. These useful stretching aids are available for purchase at Infinity’s office for $20.
Now through January 31st, 2024, anyone who buys a package of 5 or 10 sessions at Infinity Flexibility will get a stretch-out strap for free! Simply ask for the deal at the time of purchase and we will be happy to send it to you!
8. Homemade Goat’s Milk Soap
All of the products we use at Infinity are free from harmful chemicals and pesticides.
Part of holistic living is cleaning out toxic products from your life, especially the ones that you place directly on your skin. The homemade goat’s milk soap from Heavenly Homestead is a product that we love and is made in Rhode Island!
Not to mention, certain aromatherapy scents can help balance the meridians. The lung meridian responds well to scents like tea tree and eucalyptus, the stomach to cinnamon and ginger, etc.
The best way to choose is to go with the scent you are most attracted to! Your body will help you choose. We also have unscented soap for those who don’t like strong smells or have sensitive skin.
Infinity Gift Certificates
For the gift of choice and personalized wellness, consider our Infinity Flexibility Gift Cards. Whether you’re treating a friend, family member, or even yourself, these versatile cards are available in any denomination.
However, the holiday spirit is all about abundance, and we’ve got a special offer for you.

It’s our way of enhancing your gifting experience and promoting a bit of self-care during this festive season.
