What is a Seva Accupressure Session Like?
Seva is a gentle practice of acupressure utilizing the same therapeutic principles as acupuncture. The Seva Stress Release is designed specifically to ease the human stress response and support overall well-being. The specific acu-points used in the Seva Stress Release were chosen carefully for their multi-functional properties. Each point is accessed with a special style of touch, and in a particular order to facilitate an optimal deep, relaxing experience. The Chinese healing traditions make no distinction between the body, mind, and spirit. When one system is addressed, all the others are affected as well. This is why we say that the Seva Stress Release is a holistic "whole-being" approach.
The session is designed to flow from beginning to end, with the intention of acknowledging and offering support to the whole-being---not just the stressed and/or traumatized parts. Because of the deep healing wisdom in each individual, the Seva Stress Release may be a simple respite from a stressful day for one person, while the same treatment may be a profound turning point on the healing journey for another person. The goal of this release is not to "fix" or "help," but to offer the receiver an opportunity to come back home to themselves.
