Learn Self-Acupressure for Health & Wellness

Join acupuncturist Seishiro Hokazono of Samaritan Heartspring Wellness Center to learn how applying acupressure on yourself can help you reduce stress, relieve pain 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.
