Acupressure for Educators: An Illustrated Workbook for the Practice of Simple Acupressure Techniques. Experiencing Energy. Third Edition.
St. John, Jeanne
The guidelines are intended to familiarize educators with the basics of acupressure and to suggest ways in which the principles may help relieve anxiety and stress in school students. Eight energy exercises are introduced, followed by a review of the basic principles of energy and guidelines for giving and receiving acupressure. Illustrations of "quick and easy" exercises designed to aid relaxation are presented along with postures and exercises for a variety of conditions (including insomnia, sore muscles, back discomfort, and sciatica). A section on school applications considers group as well as individual activities and touches upon acupressure's contributions to nursing, speech/language/sensory motor therapy, counseling, staff meetings, and office and custodial staff.
