Jin Shin Do
Jin Shin Do uses gentle yet deep finger pressure on specific acu-points together with Body Focusing techniques to help release armoring or chronic tension, and balance the Qi or energy. Developed by psychotherapist Iona Marsaa Teeguarden, this bodymind approach is a unique synthesis of a traditional Japanese acupressure technique, classic Chinese acupressure theory, Reichian segmental theory, Taoist philosophy and Qigong (breathing and exercise techniques). JSD Acupressure promotes a pleasant trancelike state, in which one can move out of the head and into the body, accessing feelings and inner wisdom. "Jin Shin Do" means "The Way of the Compassionate Spirit."
