THIS CLASS IS FULL. WATCH FOR MORE SELF-ACUPRESSURE CLASSES IN 2014.

Join acupuncturist Seishiro Hokazono of Heartspring Wellness Center to learn how applying acupressure on yourself can help you reduce stress and foster a feeling of well-being.

Acupressure is rooted in ancient Chinese healing traditions and works by helping the energy paths in your body, known as meridians, flow freely. These techniques can help you feel calm and focused.

The free seminar will be held from 6 to 7:30 p.m., on Wednesday, Aug. 21, in the third floor conference room at Samaritan Albany General Hospital. Come ready to learn and try out self-acupressure techniques wearing comfortable clothing.
