De-Stress and Re-Connect with Acupressure
One-on-one sessions in self-acupressure to counteract stress that can be held in the body. Gail’s sessions begin with a relaxing Jin Shin Do® release for the neck and shoulders, where most people experience tension and pain—followed by instructions on using acupoint combinations to help relieve stress and tension in affected areas.
Acupressure techniques have been used in Asian cultures for thousands of years to return the body’s energy system to balance. Specific touch on specific places (acupoints) on the body help to stimulate the flow of energy that might be stuck or stagnant. The gentle reminder of compassionate touch on these areas encourages the body to return to its natural state of balance. As muscles begin to relax, the breath deepens, and a sense of well-being arises from getting in touch with the body’s own energies. Clients observe that the experience is very empowering, and creates a sense of being connected to the energy of the natural world.
To schedule a session with Gail, please call 914.232.5754. Gail is also available for group demonstrations at community centers and nonprofit organizations, at no charge, as a public service.
