By learning how to use Acupressure points with meditation, you can find peace of mind & enhance your journey to spiritual awakening.

The points open the flow of healing energy to greater enhance your meditation practice and experience.

Michael will guide you step by step how to use key Acupressure points,
Acu-Yoga postures and mudras, hand-specific types of meditations.

Each session is intended to be completed over the course of about a week. In each session, we’ll focus on different ways in which these simple exercises can make a significant difference in your life.

Acupressure is an ancient healing art that uses the fingers to press key points on the surface of the skin to stimulate the body’s natural self-curative abilities. When these points are pressed, they release muscular tension and promote the circulation of blood and the body’s life force to aid healing. Acupuncture and acupressure use the same points, but acupuncture employs needles, while acupressure uses the gentle but firm pressure of hands (and even feet). There is a massive amount of scientific data that demonstrates why and how acupuncture is effective. But acupressure, the older of the two traditions, was neglected after the Chinese developed more technological methods for stimulating points with needles and electricity. Acupressure, however, continues to be the most effective method for self-treatment of tension-related ailments by using the power and sensitivity of the human hand.

In this section, MIchael will introduce himself and discuss the importance, benefits and applications of acupressure for pain relief, relaxation and spiritual practice.
