Jin Shin Do®
“Jin Shin Do®” The Way of the Compassionate Spirit.
Jin Shin Do® Bodymind Acupressure uses gentle yet deep finger pressure on specific acu-points and verbal Body Focusing techniques, to help release “armoring” or chronic tension, balance the “Qi” or energy, and improve vitality. This clothes-on method helps relieve stress- and trauma- related problems.
Full Jin Shin Do® sessions last 1-2 hrs. The practitioner holds acupressure points, cooperating with the client to find “the perfect pressure”. The client is positioned comfortably on a massage table, fully clothed.
Jin Shin Do® points and releases are also helpful in reclaiming body awareness and as a small, very effective part of other trauma work.
A unique synthesis of a traditional Japanese acupressure technique, classic Chinese acu-theory, Taoist philosophy, Qigong (breathing and exercise techniques), Reichian segmental theory and principles of Ericksonian psychtherapy, JSD acupressure was originated by Iona Marsaa Teeguarden.
