What is Jin Shin Do® Bodymind Acupressure®?

“Jin Shin Do” means “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.  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 Eriksonian psychotherapy, Jin Shin Do® acupressure was originated by Iona Marsaa Teeguarden.

Jin Shin Do® Acupressure promotes a pleasant trancelike state, in which one can relax and move out of the head and into the body, accessing feelings and inner wisdom.

Generally a “local point” in a tense area is held together with related “distal points” which, though distant from the tense area, help it to release because of functional and energetic relationships.
