Each One Reach One, Each One Teach One, Each One Treat One.



Acupressure Research, Training and Treatment Sansthan, Allahabad has taken upon itself the gigantic task of spreading acupressure therapy to each and every part of the country by training at least one member of each family in the basics of the therapy. In addition, the Sansthan is committed to produce maximum number of highly trained acupressure professionals who will act as nucleus to further the aims and objectives of the Sansthan.

With this grand aim in view, the Sansthan is conducting a number of training programmes at different levels in the form of a movement. The details of various training programmes conducted by the Sansthan are given below.

Acupressure Awareness Training Programmes

Acupressure awareness training programmes of generally two to three hours duration are frequently organized by the Sansthan at its initiative and upon request by various organizations. As the name suggests, these programmes aim to make the masses aware of the far reaching benefits of acupressure therapy and which is practically cost free and devoid of side effects. Rudimentary knowledge of the therapy is imparted during these programmes.

Such programmes are conducted through out the year at various rural and urban areas across the country. These are generally organized at the premises of schools and colleges, government offices, public and private sectors companies, social organizations, clubs, etc. During these training programmes, free treatment is also generally provided to the patients. Conversely, whenever free outstation treatment camps are organized by the Sansthan, awareness programmes are generally also conducted for the benefit of patients who come for treatment.
