TIBETAN ACUPRESSURE COMPASSIONATE TOUCH SYSTEM
Tibetan Acupressure is compassionate touch delivered to acu points on the feet, legs, hands, shoulders, head, and back. Rapid finger pressure is applied to these points in a specific sequence, generating a neurological response in the body. The foundation of this system is based on Tibetan Buddhist meditative concentration and compassionate breathing practices.
This treatment is a simple and safe method to alleviate stress and chronic pain. Although TAS can be used for the most serious conditions, the reflex points can also be applied to reduce the effects of day to day wear and tear on the body.
Acupressure can be administered with the client sitting upright and fully dressed in a chair or wheelchair, or alternatively with the client lying on a bed or a massage table.
While delivering acupressure, the massage therapist is focused on generating compassion within her own body and in the space that the treatment is delivered, thus helping to inspire the receiver’s mind. In this way, the treatment can have healing benefits for both giver and receiver.

Tibetan Acupressure creates a deep experience of relaxation through the power of therapeutic touch and compassion. This system can illuminate places of guarding and restriction that goes on beyond our conscious recognition. Many people are unaware of the subtle ways they restrict their breath; how a baseline of anxiety and fear directly affects the functioning of their heart and digestive system; and how unresolved emotion and trauma influences the proper functioning of our physiology.
