A Definition of Fusion Acupressure 

Fusion Acupressure Method is a unique blend of Acupressure, The Meridian System, Energy Healing, Qi Gong, and Life Coaching Techniques to restore balance to the body, mind and heart. 
 

The client remains fully clothed in a session, and finger pressure is applied to different pressure points with the deliberate intention to move energy, clear blocks and support healing and provide an opportunity peace, and comfort. 

 

The Fusion Acupressure Method is beneficial for people experiencing stress, physical tension, lack of clarity and in need of emotional support. Each session combines talk therapy and pressure points to balancethe physical body, the mind and the heart. 

 

Autonomy and Inclusion 

  1. Autonomy: Fusion Acupressure practitioners respect the dignity and responsibility of all people to make responsible decisions for themselves, and we promote the value of client empowerment in our work.

  2. Care: In our practice we act in ways that support, nurture and value our client’s human rights, goals and intentions. Our behaviour is always in the service of personal wellbeing and of the common good of our client. 

  3. Equality: Practitioners recognize and respect diversity among people, including philosophies of health and wellbeing, and oppose judgmental behavior in a session. Identifying your clients core beliefs is an opportunity to meet their needs, not to influence them in any way.

 

 

Integrity and Respect 

  1. Interact with positive regard for the client in a truthful, courteous, considerate and compassionate manner, being mindful to avoid, at all times, mistreatment of a client, past or present, financially, emotionally, sexually or in any other way. 


  2. Practice within the limits of their competence, researching conditions and referring clients’ needs as appropriate.


  3. Willingly and actively participate and commit to ongoing training, ‘Supervision & Mentoring’ andprofessional development. 


  4. Aspire to living in alignment with your own core values and make conscious choices for ongoing support and growth that practitioners may live from love and sincerity rather than fear and ego. 


 

Confidentiality 

  1. Practitioners respect the privacy of clients and preserve the confidentiality of information acquired with each client. Records are to be kept safe and identifying features include client’s name, address, physicality, employment, any details obtained from the client’s assessment interview, bookings, and any detail discussed in a session, is to be kept confidential. 

  2. An exception to confidentiality may arise when circumstances suggest to the practitioner that a client is at risk of inflicting harm to self or inflicting harm to others. A practitioner’s primary responsibility is always to the client’s health and wellbeing. 


i.In the event of harm, a practitioners should, where appropriate, discuss with the client their obligation to report to a Peer Support and Review person, or senior colleague, any situations they feel could lead to harm to the client or another person. In certain circumstances however, particularly if the practitioner feels they themselves may be a risk, it is appropriate to speak directly with a colleague, seek legal advice or report the matter to the appropriate authority.

 

Professional Practice 

  1. Practitioners practice only when in sound condition and not when impaired by emotional issues, illness, alcohol, or drugs. 

  2. Practitioner hygiene is to be upheld at all times.

  3. Perfumes or essential oils are only to be used with the clients consent.

 

Professional Guidance 

  1. Avoid implying or offering guarantees of healing, rather support clients to move toward self-responsibility. Instead use words such as “opportunity”, “curiosity”, “support”.


  2. Regularly update their professional skills and personal work and supervision.

  3. Practitioners being aware of their legal responsibilities. This includes knowledge of applicable State and Federal legislation, insurance coverage and any amendments made to that legislation over time. 


 

Practice with children and young people 

  1. Working with children and young people under the age of 16, requires informed consent.

  2. All Practitioners have a responsibility to become familiar with the legislation in their State which governs the care and protection of children and young people, and will also be familiar with any accompanying guidelines that support the professional to identify children at risk. 


 

Boundaries and Relations 

  1. The relationship between a Practitioner and client is a unique and privileged relationship. It is critical that practitioners understand the intrinsic imbalance of power and influence contained in this relationship, and take responsibility for acting with due care and respect.  Never seek to gain sexual, emotional or financial advantage. 

  2. Sexual relations with clients are prohibited. 
There is to be a three month cool down period in case practitioners develops feeling towards their client. This allows an energetic shift from the practitioner and client roll to be re-defined. In the case of terminating sessions, please be sure to refer your client on to another practitioner for ongoing support.

  3. If a client begins to develop feeling towards a practitioner, act with compassion and explain your professional relationship and how feeling heard and supported can at times be confused for deeper feelings. Decide together how to proceed. If you as the practitioner are uncomfortable seek supervision support. 

 

Supervision 

  1. Supervision offers an opportunity to gain ongoing support for professional development such as individual case studies, point location, client considerations. It is also an opportunity for personal development, support and growth.

 

Ineffective Practice

  1. In the event a Fusion Acupressure Practitioner is deemed to be ineffective in therapeutic service, for either health or personal reasons, the support person and Fusion Practitioner will explore the appropriate action necessary. It may be necessary for the practitioner to stop practicing for a period of time, in which case consideration and or alternative arrangements for existing clients is to be made.
