The 15minuteStressOut process includes the following:
1.A focus on the breath throughout the experience by giver and receiver of the touch so that emotions are balanced and empathy is sustained;
2. A systematic process of touch is applied that include several techniques: feathering back, shoulders, and arms; squeezing arm muscles; stretching and spreading hands; gripping the wrists and fingers; and,
3. Pressure point acupressure is administered to selected points on the hands, shoulders, back, neck, and head.
How is this Program different from massage interventions?
This approach incorporates the coordination of the breath with givers and receivers. The givers follow the protocol or step-by-step procedures while applying skillful touch and the receivers maintain an awareness of their breath throughout the experience. Both giver and receiver are encouraged to reach for the perfect point of touch - between pleasure and pain.
Do givers of the "15minuteStressOut Program need to be licensed to practice massage?
Acupressure or pressure point manipulation is not included in the licensing requirements in most states. The other techniques such as feathering, stroking, laying-on-of-hands, and squeezing of muscles do not require professional training and are easily learned by following the instructions given in the 15MinuteStressOut.
