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

Part I

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.The Seva Stress Release can be used for self-care, addressing a wide range of needs, including general relaxation and wellbeing or extreme shock and stress. Anyone can learn this simple but effective way to help themselves.  Fully experience the Seva Stress release through demonstration and hands-on practice. 

Part II

Part I must be completed prior to taking Part II.

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.
