This month, this event is held on Wednesday due to the scheduling and travel for Professor Kannan Ravindran who is traveling from India. Professor Ravindran will be talking about acupressure and the importance of it for good health.

Private Sessions with Professor Ravindran


A private session is a consult to get some naturopathic and acupressure therapy for any existing physical pain or discomfort in the body. This is very individualized therapy based on one’s physical, mental and emotional state. Acupressure related tips and suggestions to alleviate discomfort will be provided specific to their conditions so that one can help themselves in the comfort of their own home, and can practice Acupressure points for their specific condition by applying pressure using their thumb and middle or index finger.  Once instructed, this is a low-to-no cost do-it-yourself therapy.

”When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.
Having the opportunity to hear the lectures by Professor Ravindran through Wind over Fire Healing Arts Center, I saw the passion he has for peace, health and acupressure. I was able to see that he has intimate knowledge on the subject of the Divine and a mastery of acupressure. Although I have had exposure to much of the information through yoga and reading literature, I finally had the light bulb moment. Everything became clearer as the knowledge moved from my head to my heart. Professor Ravindran, in a health assessment visit (private session), showed heartfelt compassion in a safe environment. I knew he had only my best interest in mind. As a result of my experience with Professor Ravindran, I understand and believe about waking the Divine in myself, so I may be able to serve others.”
