Self-care is one way to reduce the negative effects of stress. Taking care of yourself means to limit the amount of stress in your body so you can function at full capacity. One form of self-care is acupressure – a technique stemming from traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). Acupressure involves the use of pressure with the thumbs or fingertips to distinct points on the body. It is widely used for its calming therapeutic effects. It’s also a proven technique convenient for use both at home and office.
To help you learn more about acupressure, we are excited to present a new addition to our Wellness Webinar series, Acupressure: The Power of Self-Care. The webinar is designed to teach you about the safe use of acupressure. You will explore common self-acupressure points to help relieve headache, stress and muscle tension. This live presentation will also reveal other ways that acupressure is integrated in mind-body care.
Acupressure: The Power of Self-Care will take place on Wednesday, April 17, 2019, from 12:00 p.m. to 12:45 p.m. Pacific time.
Our monthly webinars are offered to all Health Net members and to the general public. Feel free to share this information with your friends and co-workers!
