Seva Stress Release: Part 1 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 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.

Prerequisites: This is an entry level workshop for professional health-care providers and non-professionals. There are no prerequisites for this class.

SEVA Stress Release: Part 2 For Others

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 courses.

Prerequisite: Seva Stress Release: Part 1 For Self-Care

Great Central Channel Alignment

The Great Central Channel is among the first energetic patterns developed in the body in utero. It travels along the spine to the top of the head, and up the midline on the front of the body to the face. Points along this channel are extremely potent, and have been used for thousands of years for balancing and healing. In Chinese Medicine it is said that human beings are the bridge between heaven and earth. This acupressure formula for the Great Central Channel enhances and strengthens this alignment—bringing balance, comfort and ease to the receiver. At this workshop students give and receive the Great Central Channel Release and learn Chakra Tai Chi, a special movement meditation developed by Aminah Raheem, Ph.D., the founder of Soul Lightening Acupressure.

Prerequisites: Seva Stress Release: Parts 1 & 2

Formulas for Balance and Harmony

The most fundamental principles of Chinese Medicine are based in establishing and maintaining balance and harmony throughout the whole being—body, mind, emotions, and spirit. When this is attained we are vibrant and healthy—all our systems are working together well, and we can live life to the fullest. The acupressure formulas introduced in this module are specially created to help us reclaim this sense of well-being. By holding these special point combinations we provide an opportunity for the system to recalibrate itself–allowing for the extremes of life to balance out, and returning us to our natural state of harmony. Using these formulas regularly creates a steady baseline of well-being. Once we know how to attain balance and harmony on a regular basis, it is much easier to address the occasional symptoms and disruptive patterns that arise in daily living. During this workshop you will practice locating points and reading the formulas. You will also give and receive a full acupressure session.

Prerequisites: Seva Stress Release: Parts 1 & 2

Head and Neck Formulas

In our culture a high priority is placed on being able to think and respond quickly and clearly—-not just intellectually, but physically, emotionally and spiritually as well. The free flow of energy in the head and neck is crucial for obtaining and maintaining this clarity. In this workshop we introduce three acupressure formulas that will help open the pathways of communication between the head and the rest of the body. Students will learn and practice the Basic Neck Release, the Head Formula, and the Special Headache Release.

Prerequisites: Seva Stress Release: Parts 1 & 2

Back, Abdomen & Chest Formulas

It is said that the torso of the body, including the back, abdomen and chest, is where we store the records of our lives. In broad terms, the majority of our physical processes are centered here, but on another level the torso completely reflects the core of who we are. The acupressure formulas learned in this module bring a clearer, stronger flow of energy through the torso. Students learn and practice the Back Formula, The Chest Formula, and the Abdominal Formula.

Prerequisites: Seva Stress Release: Parts 1 & 2

Formulas for the Arms & Legs

Every energy pathway that originates in the core of the body flows outward to the arms, legs, hands and feet. This makes the hundreds of acupoints on the extremities very useful for addressing the “whole being.” In this workshop students learn and experience how these acupressure formulas that benefit the arms and legs also support the emotions and provide a sense of well-being and stability. A special Muscle Relaxation Formula is included in this module.

Prerequisites: Seva Stress Release: Parts 1 & 2

Cold and Flu Formulas

Learn how to support the body’s natural ability to ward off colds and flu with our Immune/Lymph Booster Formula. This is a wonderful tool for supporting the immune system whether you are just beginning to feel symptoms, or have already come down with something. It is also a wonderful way to address common allergy symptoms. Students will also learn the powerful Sinus/Ear Formula.
