Tibetan Acupressure – Compassionate Touch (TACT)

Tibetan Acupressure (TACT) is an ancient system of reflexive pressure-point healing. TACT accesses the body’s natural corrective energies in order to bring balance to the body as a whole. This system can be used to treat specific conditions, or for the overall well-being of the body and mind.

The reflex points used in Tibetan Acupressure are found on the feet, legs, hands, arms, shoulders, head, and back.

Finger pressure is applied to reflex points in a specified sequence, generating an electrical response in the body which responds to the point stimulation.

In your session you will remain clothed and will sit upright in a chair.

I will access the reflex points by using the tip of my index finger and thumb.

The mindful focus, breath, and intent of the practitioner are important dynamics used in Tibetan Acupressure.
