The Acupressure Institute in Berkeley, California, is offering free classes and tuition decreases for 2012

Berkeley, CA (PRWEB) Nov. 23, 2011 — Bay Area Massage Therapy Certification school, The Acupressure Institute in Berkeley, California, is offering free classes and a decrease in tuition for 2012. Depending on the program, these tuition decreases provide savings of up to 11.5 percent off regular fees (can be up to $800 in savings per program). These decreased tuition rates are available now through Jan. 31, 2012.

Three introductory classes will also be offered for free this December and January: Dec. 8 from 6 to 10 p.m.; Dec. 30 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.; and Jan. 5 from 6 to 10 p.m. These classes will demonstrate and teach Acupressure for Self-Care, for share care and for professional care. Self-care acupressure focuses on the use of acupressure to relieve one’s own aches, pains and other discomforts along with promoting greater health and vitality. Acupressure used as shared care focuses on the sharing of skills and healing energies with family, friends, elders, pets and others in need, such as volunteering to share acupressure with people living with chronic or life threatening diseases. With advanced study and dedication, acupressure can also be shared as professional care, where one’s skills are used to earn income attending to and teaching others. At the Acupressure Institute, they teach and support students in learning and sharing hands-on healing skills in ways that work well for themselves and the people they care for.

Each of the three free classes are limited to 24 students and will be taught by Joseph Carter, licensed acupuncturist and director of the Acupressure Institute. Carter has practiced acupressure since 1978, and taught acupressure since 1984.

“We all hope for health and happiness in the new year! At the Acupressure Institute, our classes help people awaken the healing in their hands, this helps you keep yourself healthier, sharing hands on healing makes you happier, and given good training you can craft work that you love and that helps pay the bills!” says Tiffany Millerbiss of Acupressure Institute.
