Marilyn Zurwaski - North East and West Coast

What IA classes do I teach? I currently teach 2-day Introduction to Acupressure, Clinical Acupressure 1, Process Acupressure 1A &1B, Good Points for Self-Care workshops and Acupressure for Anyone workshops.
 
Why do I love IA? It is a simple yet profound healing technique that dates back over 3000 years, which allows the body and being to heal at its own pace. I have witnessed many people return to the healthy and authentic version of themselves, as the body knows what to do.

My Background: I am a Licensed Occupational Therapist in Massachusetts and Rhode Island. I have a background as an OT with neurologic conditions, ergonomics, and craniosacral technique. I am an Advanced Certified Practitioner in Process and Clinical Acupressure of Insight Acupressure (formerly Soul Lightening International). I have presented self-care acupressure programs at state conferences.  I love teaching in various ways for each participant can understand the material presented. Bringing this work into the world to individuals and groups is a passion of mine.

Deanna Waggy - South Bend, Indiana and Midwest

What IA classes do I teach? If you are interested in hosting a class in the Midwest, let's talk about the possibilities! I currently teach Introduction to Insight Acupressure, Clinical Acupressure 1 & 2, Process Acupressure 1A & 1B, Good Points for Self-Care workshops and Acupressure for Anyone workshops. In addition to teaching Insight Acupressure, I also teach ZB I & II for the Zero Balancing Health Association.
 
Why do I love IA?  I believe Insight Acupressure and Zero Balancing (ZB) are two of the best ways to address stress, anxiety and trauma trapped within the multi-layered fabric of our whole being. Insight Acupressure is yin to the yang of Zero Balancing; both assist with promoting expanded states of awareness and neuroregulation of the vagus nerve. The Seva Stress Release acupressure protocol is my favorite self-care home program. I also love being part of an insightful community of conscious people interested in soul wisdom, transformation and whole being health. 

My Background: DW Healing Arts: Ancient Wisdom. Modern Practices. Whole Being Health. I love problem solving, and integrating the gifts of Occupational Therapy, Insight Acupressure, Zero Balancing, and Spiritual Direction into my private holistic practice in South Bend, Indiana. I also love teaching and sharing resources with others. I am involved in ongoing research and public speaking to promote the use of Insight Acupressure and ZB in traditional therapeutic settings. I published multiple articles on acupressure in various peer-reviewed journals and collected/co-edited 90 Insight Acupressure case studies for the book Empowering Whole Being Health in 2018. I enjoy mentoring holistic practitioners, leading self-care retreats and promoting the use of integrative health modalities to address all dimensions of wellness.
