The Jin Shin Do® approach to wellness
Jin Shin Do® means "the way of the compassionate spirit". It has been said that the "magic" of the compassionate spirit is alive within each of us.
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 Ericksonian psychotherapy, JSD® acupressure was originated by Iona Marsaa Teeguarden.
Jin Shin Do® Acupressure is not intended for the diagnosis, treatment or cure of disease. It is a relaxation therapy, and a useful adjunct to licensed, qualified medical or psychological care. For any persistent pain or symptom, even a seemingly minor one, the reader is strongly encouraged to consult a medical doctor. When used in conjunction with standard medical treatment, the Jin Shin Do® Acupressure technique can assist the healing process by releasing tension, decreasing stress and encouraging a sense of increased well-being.
The Jin Shin Do® Acupressure Facial:
"Windows Of the Sky "
This acupressure session focuses on the face, neck, and shoulders. By contacting these particular points it may increase the flow of circulation and energy leading to relaxation of facial tension. These points are also related to meridians (energy pathways) in the rest of the body, thereby helping to reduce stress and balance Qi in one's entire self. This may invoke a sense of opening "The Windows of the Sky".
