SOS – Spirit of SEVA is a program in which practitioners donate their time, offering free acupressure sessions using the SEVA acupressure protocol.

This basic protocol is designed to offer relaxation, balance the energy, and help relieve stress. The only request is that the receiver passes the goodwill forward by doing a good deed of some kind for another. Clients remain fully clothed and lie comfortably on a massage table. Sessions are approximately 25-30 Minutes. Reservations are required. Please call to schedule a SEVA session.
