Self-Acupressure for Stress Management
In this session you will learn how acupressure can be a powerful tool for self-healing in times of stress. Acupressure is the practice of applying gentle pressure to specific points on the body called “acupoints” to promote a therapeutic response. The instructor will briefly describe the theory behind acupressure, and will demonstrate how the use of specific acupoints can help to encourage calm, reduce the impact of stress, and promote resiliency. There will be an opportunity to participate in a guided sequence of self-acupressure, breathing, and visualization. Participants will leave this session with the knowledge of how to perform basic self-acupressure to promote wellbeing.
