“Seva” is an ancient Sanskrit word that means selfless, compassionate service.

Part I: For Self-Care

This three hour class teaches an acupressure protocol (The Seva Stress Release) that can be used for self-care, addressing a wide range of needs, including general relaxation and well-being or extreme shock and stress. This workshop does not require previous bodywork experience.  Anyone can learn this simple but effective way to help themselves.  This dynamic and interactive workshop allows the participant to fully experience the Seva Stress release through demonstration and hands-on practice. Workshop participants learn a unique touch method, various effective acupoints and how to use this protocol for self-care. In this workshop participants learn about the healing and transforming power of acupressure, practice techniques to use for self-care, and take home skills they can use for the rest of their life.

Part II: For Family & Friends 
Part I must be completed prior to taking Part II.

This is part two of our introductory training. Our special form of acupressure touch is reviewed, and students learn to give acupressure to others. The Seva Stress Release is demonstrated and practiced in two new ways: seated in chairs and lying comfortably on massage tables. After taking modules one and two, students have enough information and skill to practice easily on themselves, as well as with family and friends.

These two modules (or a complete 6 hour Seva Stress Release workshop) comprise the pre-requisite for taking any of the remaining Acupressure for Anyone workshops.
