Seva Stress Release

What is the Seva Stress Release?

Seva Stress Release: Part 1 For Self-Care (3-hours)
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 course allows the participant to fully experience the Seva Stress release through demonstration and hands-on practice. Course participants learn a unique touch method, various effective acupoints and how to use this protocol for self care. In this course 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 course for professional health-care providers and non-professionals. There are no prerequisites for this class.
SEVA Stress Release: Part 2 For Others (3-hours)
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 course) comprise the pre-requisite for taking any of the remaining Acupressure for Anyone courses.
Prerequisite: SEVA Stress Release: Part 1 For Self-Care

seva stress releaseThis acupressure formula was developed following the events of September 11, 2001. It was created as a gift to the world to relieve suffering and was first taken to New York City and delivered to those who endured such tremendous shock and stress during that time.

Since 2001 we have found that the Seva Stress Release is a very easy-to-learn method. We are now providing services and teaching this course all over the United States and Europe to lay-people and health-care professionals alike.

What happens in a session?

This method of acupressure can be self-administered, or given to another person who is seated or lying down. The receiver stays fully clothed and finds a comfortable resting place. There are 15 specific points on the body that are accessed in order, with firm but gentle finger pressure. The session begins and ends with a full body stretch, and takes about 20 minutes to complete.

How is this work used?

Because he Seva Stress Release release is non-invasive, requires no special equipment, is simple to perform, and only takes a few minutes to receive, it can be given to virtually anyone in virtually any setting. It is an extremely useful and accessible tool for addressing a wide range of needs, including general relaxation or extreme shock and stress.

Here are just a few examples of how the Seva Stress Release has been given and received: Health Fairs & Wellness Clinics, Rescue workers at disaster sites, Hospice patients & their families, Soldiers, veterans, & their loved ones, Home-bound patients & their caregivers, Chemotherapy & radiation patients, Families and Community Centers, Safe-house residents & staff, Physicians, nurses, staff, Daily self-care practice, Children with ADHD, HIV/AIDS patients.

In Sanskrit, the word Seva means selfless, compassionate service
