discover the magic of acupressure


The Practitioner Level is a 6.5 day training that teaches you what acupressure is, how to apply touch therapy to ease tension, balance energy and clear beliefs.  You will develop a greater understanding of the metaphysical connection between the meridian pathways, the body, the corresponding emotions, and the psycho-spiritual connection of each pressure point.


This training is more than a practitioner training, it is an invitation to heal, grow and transform on a cellular level.

Holding Hands

" Attending Adria’s Fusion Acupressure training was without a doubt one of the most profound experiences of my life, personally and professionally.


Adria’s wisdom, guidance and support is everything a student could want. Not only did I walk away with additional skills to use in practice, I found a woman I am proud to be and want to share with this world.


This course is a wonderful place to start as a practitioner or compliment any current therapies already in use. The skills learnt can be tailored to suit clients of all ages, personalities and beliefs.


The Krishna Village was an exquisite venue - allowing space to learn the healing techniques of fusion acupressure while also immersing yourself in the reflective nature of this work.


I am forever grateful to Adria for sharing her knowledge and look forward to more training with her!"
