Back by popular demand, the Center for Natural Healing will be offering an acupressure facial class again next month after two years.

"Come and learn and have fun. It's a hands-on class and people enjoy themselves," Center for Natural Healing owner Noneen O'Rafferty said.

The class will be held from 6-7 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 2, at the Center for Natural Healing, 4632 Vincennes Blvd., Suite 104. The class is $25 a person and open for 15 participants. To register, individuals are encouraged to call (239) 542-5600.

"I don't want any more than 15, so I can give them the personalized attention and show them, so they are competent to go home and do it themselves," she said.

If more than 15 participants are interested, O'Rafferty said she will run a second class to accommodate everyone.

The class provides a natural face lift with acupressure. She said she has been doing it for 21 years, all of which have been in the same office in Cape Coral. Due to the popularity of the technique, O'Rafferty said she offers a DVD, which sells on Amazon, of the class.

The class begins by O'Rafferty introducing herself and getting to know a little about her audience. She said she will show each individual what medium pressure feels like, so they can duplicate the different points.

"It's their class. They ask all the way through and I talk all the way through. Every minute we go to the next point," O'Rafferty said.

Half way through the class, they will talk about gratitude - what is working, so they are not just focusing on what is wrong. Breathing and relaxation exercises will be incorporated, as well as a two minute mediation at the end.

"This is common sense medicine. It has been around for 5,000 years," O'Rafferty said.

Some of the areas that will be discussed is having dark circles around the eyes, as well as headaches and sinus problems. O'Rafferty will show attendees where they can press for both headaches and sinus pressure.

In addition, she explained individuals who are having sinus problems may have to cut down on cheese and milk, which produces mucus in the body.

"It ends up being healthy tidbits, as well as the original acupuncture points that are used in China," O'Rafferty said.

She said she gets excited about helping people, which is what has kept her passion alive for so many years.

"If you really sit with someone and ask them what is wrong, they open up and you get a holistic approach to what is going on with them. You hear their story and make adjustments and do the acupuncture and see them blossom. It's a very rewarding career. I'm passionate about this," O'Rafferty said.
