SEVA Stress Release Acupressure


    
  WHAT IS SEVA STRESS RELEASE ACUPRESSURE

SEVA is a Sanskrit word meaning "selfless compassionate Service".

"The Seva Stress Release acupressure was developed by
http://www.soullightening.com/  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 workshop all over the United States and Europe to lay-people and health care professionals alike.

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 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.

Because the Seva Stress Release is noninvasive, 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 or stress.

Here are a few examples of how it has been given and received:
    Soldiers, veterans, and loved ones
    Home-bound patients and caregivers
    Chemotherapy and radiation patients
    Families and community centers
    Physicians, nurses, and staff
    Business employees
    Children and adults with ADHD
    Daily self-care practice
            ...and more!!!

Acupressure is the practice of applying hand or finger pressure to specific energetic or conductive points on the body. It is based upon the same ancient principles as the art of acupuncture, except that It uses the softer form of curved finger pressure on the points.
