About Acupressure

Acupressure supports the body's own balancing and healing processes. All parts of a human being, and nature itself, are interconnected and dependent on each other. Teachings about this perspective can be traced back thousands of years. The Chinese mapped predictable energy pathways (meridians) throughout the body nearly 4000 years ago, and have been using them as a health reference ever since. Ancient teachings from India inform us about major energy centers in the body (chakras). These traditions address the vital energies of the body, to facilitate balance, rejuvenation, and wellness. When we are more balanced, all the systems in the body are able to function optimally.  We are able to handle stress in ways that reduce the impact on all systems and all levels of our being.  Acupressure brings the profound healing potential of these ancient teachings into the contemporary treatment room. The experience of receiving this work is authentic and empowering. 

Why Is Acupressure So Effective Now?

Often described as "acupuncture without needles", acupressure promotes balance, renewed energy, rejuvenation, and wellness by accessing and addressing the vital energies of the body.  Self-care acupressure is especially suited to address the needs created by the Covid 19 crisis.  Even though the need for connection and human touch are hard wired into our nervous systems, we must distance ourselves from those we love at a time when we desperately need support.  This Acupressure technique will help you provide for yourself a deep sense of connection through holding the acupressure points.  Using a gentle but significant connection, you will learn to use acupressure to address stress reactions in the body using touch.

About Soul Lightening Acupressure

Lorie utilizes and teaches Soul Lightening Acupressure. 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. Many of the points used are on the extraordinary meridians, the meridians which are the first to develop after conception. They are deeper pathways of energy than the 12 meridians associated with the organs that are often used for acupuncture. Recipients of this work often report feeling nurtured and supported.  This is so important during these stressful times of Covid -19 and social distancing.  Our bodies and psyches need nurturing and touch for our survival.  The Seva Stress Release is a way to provide both for ourselves and can be used to help our loved ones.
